Here’s the president’s website.  There is strong Orwellian language here.  For example, click on the Medicare link.  It will talk about how Medicare is being strengthened.  But is it?  Who funded him?  Then there’s the No Child Left Behind, but if you talk to a public school teacher, they might have a different opinion.  There’s also the Patriot Act.
