Standard practice has always been for outgoing U.S. Presidents to keep a low profile and take leave of our nation’s capital so that the incoming President can fully assume power. Unfortunately former President Barack Obama does not seem to respect how our democratic system work, and has remained in Washington, D.C. not far from the White House, in a clear attempt to try to curb President Donald Trump’s power.
Ex-President Obama has also made statements countering President Trump. He once again attempted to undermine the current President’s authority by making a public announcement regarding the recent unsuccessful vote to repeal his personal ego project Obamacare.
Said Barack through his spokesman Kevin Lewis,“The Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed last night in the early hours of the morning. Last night’s vote served as the final kill shot to the seven-year Republican-led effort to repeal Obamacare.”
He added, “The Affordable Care Act has always been about something bigger than politics – it’s about the character of our country. It’s about the twenty million Americans and counting who’ve gained the security and peace of mind of health insurance, and the tens of millions more who benefited from upgrades like free preventative care, such as mammograms and vaccines, and improvements in the quality of care in hospitals that have averted more than 100,000 deaths so far. It’s about the dreams protected, and the untold misery and ruin prevented.”
The statement added, “Today, it remains that way because of everyone who mobilized organized and made their voices heard. The Affordable Care Act has made America stronger and healthier, but there will always be more work to do. President Obama has always said we should build on this law, just as members of both parties worked together to improve Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid over the years. President Obama still believes that it is possible for Congress to demonstrate the necessary bipartisanship and political courage to keep delivering on the promise of quality, affordable health insurance for every American.” Do you think narcissist Obama needs to finally accept that he’s no longer President?
