I’ve always maintained that “Obamacare” was a misnomer for the Affordable Care Act.

I call it Obama (didn’t) care. He didn’t care that in town meetings all over the country people spoke out against it and more than 50 percent did not approve of the bill. He didn’t care that it would hurt small businessmen by forcing them to increase coverage at a time when jobs and the economy were of the utmost importance.

He didn’t care that he rammed the bill through behind closed doors intimidating members of his own party with Chicago-style politics.

All the narcissistic president cared about was passing a bill that the Clintons could not.
