Today marks four years since President Obama consummated Americas decades-long dalliance with health care reform. The White Houses East Room was the venue for the ceremony that day, during which the president, a metallic blue tie around his neck and a light dusting of gray in his hair, applied his powerful signature in 22 clipped dashes two pens per letter, one for each of his honored guests to the Affordable Care Act, which we know as Obamacare, the law Republicans say, on this anniversary, will fuel another midterm election sweep.
The legislation itself is massive, ground-breaking, and meaningful in a way that goes far beyond the provisional requirements. Obamacare in its four years and all those to come, barring #FullRepeal, is and will be pretty much anything the country wants.
So after four years now of Obamacare, President Obamas legacy-in-waiting, most on the center-right on out still regard it as a liberals pie-eyed dream a dream that, like all the rest, has a monster at the end of it.
Democratic elected officials the ones retiring, not running or having their seats threatened in this coming mid-term election argue that no, theres no monster, and that if you step back and look again, if youre inclined to really try and see, where once there was dark the lights winning.

A day which will live in infamy.
“a meandering epic with a meaning youll have to decide on your own.”
Obamacare has just begun to do all the damage it is capable of doing, ...monster indeed. We’ve only seen a fraction of its destructive force. The rest of this monster is chained away, waiting for a post election holocaust. We need to kill it before then.
