Obama: My ‘Policies Are on the Ballot’ this Fall, ‘Every Single One of Them’

‘Affordable health care might still be a fanged threat to freedom of the American people on Fox News’

Obama: Obamacare "Might Still Be A Fanged Threat To Freedom on FOX News" (RealClearPolitics)

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle's pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them. This isn't a political speech, and I'm not going to tell you who to vote for – even though I suppose it is kind of implied.

But what I have done is laid out my ideas to create more jobs and grow more wages. And I've also tried to correct the record, because as I said, there is a lot of noise out there. Every item I've ticked off, those are the facts. It's not conjecture of opinion or partisan rhetoric. I laid out facts. So I laid out what I know has happened over the last six years of my presidency so far, and I've laid out an agenda for what I think should happen to make us grow even better, even faster. 

A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out their agenda. Hopefully also grounded in facts. There's a reason fewer Republicans are preaching doom on the deficits – because the deficits have come down at almost a record pace and they're now manageable. There's a reason fewer are running against Obamacare – because while good, affordable health care might still be a fanged threat to freedom of the American people on Fox News, it turns out it's working pretty well in the real world.
