Obama, by contrast, deficit-financed an economic recovery, which is sound economic practice. He has attempted to repeal part of the Bush tax cuts, which Republicans still dive in front of to save. And he passed a healthcare reform of his own that is bigger and more efficient than Part D, which paid for itself.
I've lost the capacity to feel hope many, many years ago. But this is definitive change.
