The Democrats followed Obama’s every wish and supported every policy he espoused. As a result, they lost more combined seats in the US Senate, US House, Governorships, State Legislative Seats and State Chambers than any President since FDR. What a dismal record!
Rather than shift their policies and disavowal his failures, they continue to defend his legacy. This isn’t a surprise because like lemmings committing suicide by following their leader off of a cliff, they supported his every wish.
Remember when Nancy Pelosi declared they had to pass the Obama Care legislation without reading it to know what was in it? The Democrats willingly followed her command and passed one of the worst pieces of legislation in the history of the United States. At the time, they refused to allow the Republicans to participation in the planning and writing of the law. It was exclusively a partisan law that wasn’t even debated in the House or Senate. That is what they do in dictatorships!
Obama even declared you can keep your health plan and you can keep your doctor which turned out to be outright lies. But the members of Congress defended him even after his words were proven to be false and misleading. So they proved they were lemmings again.
The major insurance companies like United Health Care, Humana, Aetna and Blue Cross/Blue Shield have been withdrawing from the Obama Care health plan because they said it was unsustainable. They have all taken loses of hundreds of millions of dollars because the law didn’t do what Obama and the Democrats claimed it would do with health care costs. Instead of being the Affordable Care Act, it has become the Unaffordable Care Act due to extremely high premiums and deductibles.
Add to this the lack of transparency, a foreign policy that was a shambles, the enormous $9 trillion dollar debt the Obama Administration accumulated, the failed “shovel ready” jobs initiative, the disastrous infrastructure plan, the ridiculous emphasis on global warming as the greatest danger, the failed stimulus, the lack of good economic growth, the decline of the middle class by 7 percent, the addition of 7 million people to the welfare rolls, the 13 million additional people on food stamps, the failed reset with Russia, the paying of ransom money to Iran, etc. These and other failed Obama Administration policies and procedures were endorsed, supported and defended by the Democrats.
So now we have a declining Democratic Party. Instead of giving up on the failed leadership of Obama and his policies, they continue to defend him and his legacy to the determent of their party. This is why in the 2018 election look forward to addition party loses in state and federal elections. It is a party inflicting a self-imposed wound.
