Joaquin Tenedora-Forte January 15, 2016
Let us flashback for a little bit in 2008, a young senators from Illinois Senator Barack Obama was running for president of the United States. He was up against the political juggernaut Senator Hillary Clinton from New York, he beat her, in the democratic primary, like David beats Goliath. In due of his last year of presidency I want to write about his legacy.
His biggest legacy perhaps is ObamaCare, a health care law that gave Americans the choice to buy Cheep on the private market. It is a step on the right direction and is definitely not perfect, because their are millions of people that are uninsured. I think that America is over due for universal healthcare.
One of the most controversial things that Obama did is his executive action on immigration. As an effort to give relief to undocumented young people in 2012, signing the Deferred Action against Childhood Arrivals. And in 2014 he sign a expanded version that gave relief to their parents and to people who are not legible back in 2012.
The most disappointing things about Obama is the wars in the Middle East. He said while campaigning in 2008 that he will end the wars that was started by his predecessor President Bush, specially Iraq. Six years later America is still fighting in Iraq. In my opinion the president should discharge from Iraq in 2010.
One of the most amazing things that happened during his presidency is the legalization of Marriage equality. Obama is the first president to ever support marriage equality. He did it whIle campaigning in 2012 for his second term.
