Before the Democrats and Obama took office in 2008 and before what is known as the Affordable Healthcare Act which is anything but affordable, families could afford Medical Health Insurance and most deductibles were around $400.00 or less. After the Democrats, and solely the Democrats (zero Republican votes) they implemented what is still called Obamacare and right after that Healthcare Insurance rates increased to a historical high rate but worse and affecting everyone that had health insurance pockets the deductibles rose exponentially. This was money that came directly out of people's pockets and budgets BEFORE any of the new expensive health insurance would take place.
This, to me, is the legacy of Democratic leadership and Obama's presidency and came totally out of complete Democrat leadership as this legislation came from a time when Democrats had total control of both houses of congress and the Presidency. This can be blamed entirely on Democrats and they even pushed the legislation though rather than waiting on the Republican senator from Mass to be seated knowing that then the Republicans would have enough votes to stop or delay it. If folks remember this was Kennedy's old seat when a Republican was elected, some feel, exactly to stop this disaster from taking place but it didn't stop it because the Democrats found a way to push/force it through before the new Republican could be seated and vote on it.
This one act alone was my personal line in the sand and point where I completely lost most, if not all, objectivity when it comes to the national parties. Nothing that the Republicans ever has done has taken so much and as much money directly out of the working person's pockets.
