Unwilling to slink quietly off into the night, President Barack Obama is planning yet another strategy to obstruct, interfere, hinder, frustrate, and otherwise thwart the upcoming Trump presidency.
After deeply damaging U.S. relations with Israel and Russia, Obama is now engaging in a last-ditch effort to make it very difficult for Trump and Republicans in Congress to repeal Obamacare, according to Politico.
Obama will be meeting Wednesday with top Democrats in Congress to discuss ways to shield the Affordable Care Act.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is insisting that the troubled Obamacare is worth saving.
“The Affordable Care Act has been successful in meeting its goals of reducing cost, increasing access and improving quality of care,” she wrote to her colleagues last week, ignoring much evidence to the contrary.
Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Bernie Sanders are her key supporters fighting to save the act.
Democrats are also planning to attack Republican efforts to overhaul Medicare and Medicaid.
But even left-leaning Politico made it clear that they believe it’s a long, uphill battle for the Democrats now that Republicans will have so much power.
What do you think of this?
