He's an absolutely pathetic leader. His entire Presidency has been built around trumping up this catastrophic piece of shit and he doesn't even have the stones to fully implement it.
Uh, he didn't write the law.
The law is not a perfect beast -- no law governing 1/6th of the American economy will be.
But to claim these problems are either inherently flawed or irreparably ****ed is just a fundamental misunderstanding of how governing works. This can easily be tweaked, but the politics of doing so are so poisonous for one of the parties in power (a totally self-inflicted foible) that this difficulty with the law will not be allowed to get fixed.
