    opportunity to finally receive access to healthcare.

    I know that many are committed to the rhetorical suggestion that Obama hasn't done much--that seem to want to suggest that these millions of people really didn't receive access to healthcare, or women to contraceptive care, or that Obama didn't achieve increasing fuel efficiency standards in cars, or extending Pell Grant so that millions can get a college education, or reducing the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine, or ending DADT or placing two women on the Supreme Court, saving the car industry and saving the economy from a second Great Depression....

    If he had only achieved the passing of the ACA during his eight years in office, this achievement alone would have cemented Barack Obama in history as responsible for greatly improving the station of the poor and middle class in this nation. No wonder Republicans desperately continue to try and repeal it,  tough Luck! The horse has already leaped  through the gate.

    They will never be able to take away the benefits secured by the ACA from all these aforementioned millions of people. Yes, as Joe Biden commented, this was a BFD!
