Astonishingly, Obamacare passed - by seven votes. It took a massive surge of pork-addition to the bill and patented Obama dishonesty in pushing the program's costs to get it done, yet there was The Man On The Way Up signing a bill that by any objective measure cannot work - as started to become obvious as two key promises in Obamacare - that parents could keep kids on their insurance programs until age 26, and denial of the claim that small businesses would be forced to stop or scale back hiring - exposed themselves as phony.
And the fight will only get worse, with state lawsuits against the policy among other acts of resistance to Obama's nationalization of health care, to go with the striking level of weakness Obama displayed in this fight - he lobbied for the ball in the name of his presidency, and the list of broken promises by Obama can only come back to haunt him.

The recent summit hosted by The Man On The Way Up didn't do him any favors, as the Republicans countered his arguments with cogent facts, leading to such moments as when Obama cut off John McCain for pointing out the deceit and corruption of Obama's PhRMA deal-making. What the summit showed most glaringly was how illiterate The Man On The Way Up is on how the health care system actually works, and how this illiteracy helps drive his absurd proposals.
