    He's just repaying the people that supported and advised him during his presidency. Like Trump, he was in Wall Streets pocket. This is just the payoff. Same that Hillary got.

    His new book supposedly has a not so surprising surprise in it.

    Let me come back with source, before I expand.

    I can't find anything from non-right leaning sources, so I am willing to retract.

    Right-leaning source. I guess we will find out when the book comes out.

    It doesn't even matter if true, the issue I have with it if true is that he hid it because it was beneficial politically for him to keep it hidden.

    1. Obama signed the NDAA that had that line item written in by Congress. The signing was needed to keep the $ flowing to the military. Obama was against that part but Congress wouldn't take it out. So if you're going to pass blame, make sure you pass it around to all parties.

    2. So sort of like Trump just did with the MOAB and Syria?

    3. You're smart enough to know the situation that led to that increase.

    4. Refer to what?

    5. That was done purely at the military level. Obama played no part in that.

    6. Yes the ACA is Obama's baby but only fools would ignore that our health care system was sold out then. Health care corporations have controlled the system for decades, ever since health insurance went for profit. There's a great documentary about how the health care industry used to be non-profit but that changed in the early part of the 20th century and it went all down hill since.

    1. HE did NOT have to sign it for it to pass. and yes I am fine with putting all of those in congress in jail, democrat or republican. http://lowenthal.house.gov/legislation/bill-to-law.htm

    2. trump is in Syria because Obama made it that way.

    3. selling out? yes.

    4. DNC cheating by helping Hillary.

    5. so he was not president when it happened?

    6. deflection noted. over 300 million spent introducing his tax on the poor, that 300 million could have bought HC policies but nooooo, he had to sell out.

    That's twice as much is Hillary. Sexism!

    Wow, what a middle finger to the Democrats from their own. A party desperately in need of a voice in support of the common man and the only beloved politician this side of Bernie goes straight to Wall St. F me, that's gotta sting.

    If you aren't gay then maybe you should consider it because that's the only way you are going to get any semblance of respect from your party leadership. Or be ultra rich. Either or, really. Or both.

    As a recent former democrat I really don't know what the rest are holding on to. It certainly can't be easy. Almost everyday is like a treasure trove of why I made the right decision.

    1. Actually he did have to sign it, it's the US's defense budget. It's importance is far greater then one controversial line item.

    2. That's a deflection and doesn't answer the question. Plus Obama didn't make Syria the way it is. Let's not forget Trump tweeting to Obama to stay out the entire time.

    3. The economic situation when Obama took office led to majority of that. How it was handled is also essentially unanimously as the right move for the country.

    4. Explain how it was the whole DNC that did that?

    5. The military never runs every situation by the POTUS, that's just stupid to even think. Again you should know better.

    6. I specifically stated the ACA is Obama's. I added additional info, that's not a deflection.

    To be fair, Hillary was never POTUS. One would expect the POTUS to get better offers.
