"We were $6 trillion less in debt, for starters."

Yet, we came within a whisker of financial Armageddon, avoided only thanks to Bush/Paulson and his democratic team. That financial collapse also, in case you've conveniently forgotten, happened under the tax rates that the GOP thinks will create Armageddon if they are allowed to expire for the wealthy.
So much for that theory.

" As I said, it's like the other party doesn't actually control the Senate and the Presidency."

You need to learn a bit more about how DC works. Governing is a tough job but BLOCKING the other party from governing, even with a substantial minority, is fairly easy and the GOP showed us just how easy it is.

"But I do know several people who wantses their free health care."

Which, of course as you must know, is not what Obamacare is but why let that stop you.
In fact, quite the opposite. Obamacare put an end to free health care, which has always existed, in the form of a mandate, which the right did everything they could to stop.
Conservatives FOUGHT for free health care. Your side FOUGHT for the right of Americans to go without insurance and, instead, get free emergency room care when needed.
Hypocrisy at it's finest.
