7 Politicians Who Had Us Tuning in This Year
Some politicians don’t do things halfway; whether it be success or disaster, they make an impact. This year was no exception. A number of politicians gracefully crossed in front of the public eye, while quite a few others stumbled and crashed. All in all though, it’s worth our time to take a look at some of the big names from 2013.
1. Barack Obama
President Obama’s healthcare initiative was both a major political move with far reaching effects and an unfortunate stream of blunders. Either way, Obama certainly made this year his own — just ask Republicans. The implementation of the health care website was most definitely a newsworthy mistake, but his reform program has had other reactions as well.
For example, the Republican governor of Nevada — which has the second lowest insurance rate — fully supported and implemented the new healthcare system to a highly positive public response. The president has also drawn attention for other accomplishments this year, including international and economic efforts, his focus on international job creation, and the election of Janet Yellen for Federal Reserves Chair.
