Obama did not create this, it has been in the works for a very long time.

It is a shame that way too many people are blind or so stubborn to look at Obama objectively.

@SmagBoy1: And have families saved ON AVERAGE $2,600? No they have not!

State by state it varies, but overall it has gone UP across the board! Since the 2010 signing. Some because of regular increases, but MOSTLY because of the ACA.

And 5 million+ are without policies in 2 weeks BECAUSE of the ACA and no other reason.

"40%" isn't literal, dude, it`s approximate. Just like "Save $2,600" is, but going UP %40 is not covered under "saving $2,600" is it? Honestly.

@lauriloo: So the Democrats AND the Repubs voted it down together, but ONLY the Repubs are to blame? Is that what you`re saying?

And the link is the order to "review" the closure. All Obama had to do was order it closed: Job Done! Of course it would be CHAOS after that! LOLZ! Inmates turned loose in Cuba? LMAO! But it`s HIS promise! Not mine. HE can clean up the mess...

"The repubs never HAD TO because Obama didn't even TRY to do it!"

Executive Order to close Guantanamo issued in Jan 2009

On 20 May 2009, the United States Senate passed an amendment to the Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2009 (H.R. 2346) by a 90–6 vote to block funds needed for the transfer or release of prisoners held at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. They didn`t want detainees on American soil in "people`s back yards" even though many terrorists are already in American prisons.

So yes, Democratic senators also had a hand in blocking the closing of Guantanamo but Obama can`t be blamed for it still being open. Actually, the latest budget bill that just passed has a piece that takes steps to clear a bunch of the detainees out.

5Cats, first of all, the 40% increase numbers you're citing are from a Forbes article published even before the one I linked to. That`s why I chose the one I did. Second of all, the ACA has been in effect for nearly two years.
