The President has gone through a lot of criticism during his term, but every now and then he gets some wins. This week the president has gotten a lot of wins, and he’s pretty much killing it. Here’s just a few wins he’s had this past week.
1. Gay Rights Win
As the first president to openly support gay marriage, the president is pretty pleased about the SCOTUS ruling that Constitution guarantees a nationwide right to same-sex marriage. He’s all happy rainbows and unicorns as you can tell.
2. The Trade Bill Win
Obama was a little worried about his new favorite bill...a part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Deal. And turns out it wasn’t as hard as Obama thought it would be to win. The bill was approved easily 286-138.
This trade bill gives President Obama a “fast-pass” (you know, like the ones at disneyland that let you get on all the rides first) in trade promotion authority.
3. Health Care Win
Supreme Court was faced with looking at Obama’s Affordable Health Care. A big case was taken all the way to court that could even reject the Affordable Care Act. And in a ruling of 6-3 the Supreme Court said... "you’re good dude." His reaction after he found out was pretty great.
"Today, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law, after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law, after multiple challenges to this law in front of the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay," Obama said of the ruling on Thursday.
Michelle and this kids are pretty proud of their super-dad. They are partying it up with the president in the White House I’m sure...
Let’s see if the president can keep on #winning, or if it’s just a week of good luck.
