President Obama didn't govern as left as he campaigned. But much of that was due to a Republican congress blocking all attempts at him pushing his agenda left. And maybe he did compromise too much, like with the ACA, or maybe the ACT wouldn't have happened at all if he had not. Hell, the initial proposals/drafts of the FDR's Great Deal included the concept of universal health care, but was taken out due to pressure from many in (and who benefitted from) the medical industry. "Imagine" if it was passed along with Social Security......... "Imagine"
So where does this leave me/us on the left? "Give Trump a Chance?" Certainly very different than when John sang we should "Give Peace a Chance."
