Barack Obama

Positive things 1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems. 2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs. 3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies. 4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011. 5. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

worst things that Barack Obama did in 2012 1. His administration messed up in Benghazi. How or why, it's taking a long time to figure out – because the White House isn't super keen to talk about it. Only on Sunday did the President admit there had been some “sloppiness” in the handling of this terrorist attack, which is a slight upgrade from his earlier verdict of “not optimal.” The three things we do know for certain are: a) four Americans were killed,


b) the cause of their deaths was misrepresented by the administration, and c) the President went fundraising in Las Vegas just one day later. No, it's not very “optimal” at all. 2. He failed to provide leadership on the economy. Dogged by poor jobs numbers throughout the election, Obama tried to shift the nation’s attention on to the culture war. As a result, the USA looked over the fiscal cliff without any sense of what the President wanted to do for the long term health of the nation’s finances. We know that he wants to raise taxes on the wealthy, but what about entitlement reform? And what is he willing to offer the Republicans that they know he will deliver on? Obama has never given a major speech on debt and has largely ignored the advice of his own task force on the subject. 3. He took a bold stand against freedom of conscience.Obamacare should have just been about expanding access to healthcare. But Obama also used it as an opportunity to compel religious employers to provide contraception coverage to their employees. This is a big philosophical departure for US liberalism, which hitherto tended to disagree with but respect Catholic moral theology. By contrast, the President made challenging the Vatican’s position on free love a big part of his re-election drive. This included an alliance with a female student, Sandra Fluke, who wanted her Catholic college to provide contraception coverage worth $1,000 a year – a figure that works out to 6 acts of contra-celibacy per day. Time Magazine considered making her a person of the year, too. 4. He stepped up his war on civil liberties. Obama has increased random searches, indefinite detention, and the power of the state to take control of civil society in the event on an emergency (this list might read like it was compiled by Ron Paul on a liquid liberty high, but even the bit about martial law is horribly true). This year we even discovered that he’s writing a kill list, which may include the names of American citizens. Then there are the drone strikes – essentially war without risk, implicitly targeted at civilian populations. Obama is starting to look like George W Bush, minus the roguish charm.
