    anymore?  There is literally NO talk of repeal other than Ted Cruz.  They lost that one too just like they're going to lose Benghazi & their craven
    response to Beau Bergdahl coming home.

    When even Paul Krugman says "Obama is looking like a very consequential President indeed"..... you know the President's
    accomplishments are not only being racked up but noticed &
    heralded.

    Benghazi is all they have.

      Jonathan Chait, at New York Magazine, wrote an article just last week that Presidential Candidate Obama had four campaign promises:

      http://nymag.com/...

      Those were the four major areas of domestic reform: economic recovery measures, health-care reform, a response to climate change, and education reform. (To the justifiable dismay of immigration advocates, Obama did not call for immigration reform at the time, and immigration reform is now the only possible remaining area for significant domestic reform.) With the announcement of the largest piece of his environmental program last Monday, Obama has now accomplished major policy responses on all these things. There is enormous room left to debate whether Obama’s agenda in all these areas qualifies as good or bad, but “ineffectual” seems as though it should be ruled out at this point.
      When I was a grad student, I had an opportunity to meet and lunch with Paul Krugman prior to receiving his Nobel Prize - I've been a fan ever since.  However, it appears to me that Paul Krugman jumped on the bandwagon after reading the article by Jonathan Chait.

      Let's credit Mr. Chait, not Paul Krugman, for pointing out that President Obama met his personal challenge and addressed the four priorities he established when running for president.

      Were you fortunate to read that a free clinic in Arkansas closed down due to ACA? Yes, the clinic ran out of patients. Then I read what a big percentage of Arkansans are insured now due to ACA. I saw an interview a while back of an elderly woman who is a Republican. She said "Obamacare is the best thing that has ever happened to Arkansas, my  whole family has insurance now and it is our  first time". I live across the state line in Oklahoma.

      What did we have last night on Ft. Smith, Arkansas television stations? TWO, not one, ads the Republican whatshisname is running against Obamacare! Yes! The state is for it and he's against it and is smearing his opponent.

      We will always have pockets of stupidity and I wanted you to know that Arkansas is still hanging in there on the ACA!

      I pray that more  are taking notes and keeping lists.
