That's fine if it's your definition of balance. That doesn't mean I have to adopt it. If Obama meant 1:1 during the campaign, it was kind of misleading (given the previous attempts to reach a compromise with congressional Republicans), but it's at least a plausible argument.
Of course, Republicans aren't obligated to sign on to whatever it is that he meant. He should be held to his campaign statements not the GOP.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
