      ACT as did people who had pre-existing conditions etc. Car workers. Teachers who were not fired due to shortfalls. Veterans, women who want fair pay, etc.

      You are full of it.

      •  How about the incredible income equality (0+ / 0-)

        gap that just keeps getting larger under Obama?

        When someone mentions the consequences of Obama's worst policies, it's amazing how quick his supporters (on this site) will try to point the conversation in a different direction...and then they will say something extremely petty.

        But they will never acknowledge the lack of interest Obama has shown for helping the millions of Americans who have suffered the most during his term in office.

        After the debate, Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg told Obama that he had failed to address the concerns of single women:

        When I look at our great challenges, I say, we’re all in this together. But the Republicans say, you are your own. Well that’s given us a country of just rich and poor and the well-connected using their power to get more tax cuts and breaks. Well, we need to make our country work for the middle class again. Clean up lobbyists and big money. Let’s keep taxes low for the middle class and small businesses and use the budget to help the middle class by seriously investing in education, rebuilding America, and making sure Medicare is there.
        Sounds like good advice to me.

          for decades. And policies that benefit the rich are not something new but a feature of modern American politics.
          Don't try to heap it all onto one man's shoulders.
