Barack Obama is about as worthless as they come in terms of being a president, and the last 8 years is more than enough proof. Unfortunately for him, the U.S. Senate wanted to make that abundantly clear – and they did just that with a nasty going away surprise that shows him exactly what he’s worth.
When it comes down to it, Obama doesn’t have much in terms of a legacy. Sure, there’s the whole “first African-American president” thing, but seeing how the color of his skin is something he can’t control, it doesn’t really say much.
What does, though, is his track record and the policies he left in place. When you look at that, things aren’t as glamorous as Obama would have you believe. In fact, all we really have left in Obama’s wake is a national debt twice as high as when he entered office, a slew of people who lost their jobs, and the disastrous Obamacare.
The “Affordable” Care Act (ACA) is Obama’s baby since it’s the only thing he’s really done in the past 8 years, even though it faced strong opposition. Regardless, he was able to shove it down the throats of reluctant Americans, only to later see everything begin to happen that was predicted when he first started spewing his false promises.

“Americans face skyrocketing premiums and soaring deductibles,” said Senate Budget Committee chairman Mike Enzi. “Insurers are withdrawing from markets across the country, leaving many families with fewer choices and less access to care than they had before — the opposite of what the law promised.”
It seems that the one thing Obama stood a chance at leaving behind as a legacy is about to go down the drain as the Senate decided to gift him with a nasty going away surprise. According to Opposing Views, Obama was shown exactly what he is worth with a passing Senate vote of 51 to 48 to repeal Obamacare.
Furthermore, Republicans have devised a 4 step process to get rid of the nonsense altogether, including blocking Democrats from filibustering the appeal, chipping away at parts such as the mandate penalty, allowing Donald Trump to work on their side through executive action, and implementing a worthwhile replacement.
This country is sick of Obama’s borderline tyrannical behavior, and he’s finding that out first hand. It just goes to show that mandating a decree doesn’t exactly work here in America. Just as Michelle Obama found out with her abysmal lunch program that has been forgotten at this point, her husband can only watch as his legacy crumbles before his eyes as well. Thankfully, now he finally gets the big picture on exactly what he’s worth – and it’s not nearly what he figured.
