All presidents acted, but few so sweepingly
"The actions I’m taking" are "the kinds of actions taken by every single Republican president and every single Democratic president for the past half-century."
Exit polls say otherwise
In the 2014 elections, "the American people overwhelmingly said we don't want Obamacare … and we don't want amnesty."
From 'I'm not a king' to 'obliged to do everything I can'

"According to recent reports, a group of death panels organized under Obamacare ordered their first execution."
A big share, but not quite
"We've created more jobs in the United States than every other advanced economy combined since I came into office."
Flawed methodology exacerbates the problem
"Over 214,000 doctors opt out of Obamacare exchanges."
