Why do liberals support Obama’s failed policies?

OlympiaSeptember 2, 2013 

I would posit that the majority of folks reading The Olympian consider themselves to be good liberals and supporters of President Barack Obama. That being said, I would ask those folks why their president cannot or will not accept the fact that his legacy legislation, the Affordable Care Act, is in such disarray and why do they still support his failed policies?

His administration has failed to meet more than half of the mandated deadlines outlined in the ACA. He has taken it upon himself to waive several parts of the legislation even though he has no authority to do so.

While he gives special waivers to his union friends and congressional staff, we, the people, get the shaft. He does all of this while he blames Republicans for the faulty implementation of the program.

Truth is, the blue states that have tried the hardest to implement have had the most problems. The bill, as it now stands, is set to cost $1.9 trillion over the next 10 years. Quite a difference from the $800 billion we were sold four years ago. Thank you, Mr. President, enjoy your vacations.
