Yes, it's all about PORK. The incumbent is able to show all the money he has brought to the district. That is especially true of the Senate that has refused to cut out earmarks from the budget. Even when there are competitive bids, congressmen like to take credit for government money coming in- a real stretch but I know it happens.

He wasn't paying attention in civics- just had his own ideas.
Let's face it the issue is not contraceptives or abortion. It is the right to have sex without consequences- the sex is recreation, not reproduction to them. The WHOLE purpose of sexual intercourse is offspring. It's the natural law. Goes for all species! Pregnancy is not a disease and therefore is not part of preventative health. If you don't want to get pregnant, no sex or pay for it yourself!
He's only interested in controlling the scenario. This isn't in his favor- not interested!
surplus only means for the current year income exceeded expenditures. It doesn't mean that they didn't borrow more and increase the overall debt.
I'm not so sure it was all his efforts. The legislature was almost veto proof and he went along with it rather than face a veto override.

Obamacare was a major Trojan Horse. Nobody read it and didn't know what was in it. In addition it included so many statements where the implementation was up to the discretion of the Secretary. It would not have passed if the regulations she promulgated were in the original law
yes!
Go for the override! What do you expect from the Abortion party.
