The 44th President of the United States will be remembered, for better or for worse, by his signature legislation the Affordable Care Act.

According to a Gallup poll released Monday:

“Americans see the 2010 Affordable Care Act as President Barack Obama's greatest achievement to date as well as his biggest failure, underscoring the controversial nature of the law that is likely to define his legacy. On balance, more Americans name the healthcare law as his biggest failure (36%) than as his greatest achievement (22%).”

The poll showed two interesting facts. The first, is that more Americans view Obamacare as a failed piece of legislation rather than a note-worthy accomplishment. The second, is that 23 percent of Americans vote Obama has made no great achievements at all.

Based on the poll results, a simple syllogism concludes that President Obama’s greatest achievement during his administration was a complete and utter failure.
