What Obama has ended "as we know it"

The most prominent and concise attack against Mitt Romney's new running mate, Paul Ryan, is that his budget plan "ends Medicare as we know it". Let's take a look at some other things that have been ended "as we know it" recently, except these by President Obama:

  • Private health insurance
  • General Motors
  • Chrysler
  • United Auto Workers
  • Medicaid
  • Immigration
  • Student loans
  • Defense of Marriage Act
  • Don't Ask Don't Tell
  • No Child Left Behind
  • Libya
  • Egypt
  • Gulf oil drilling
  • Cuban embargo
  • Hate crime law
  • NASA
  • Financial regulation
  • Supreme Court
  • Payroll taxes
  • Food stamps
  • Welfare

Ending something "as we know it" is also called "reform" when it's favorable. Since when did liberals become the champions of the status quo? Why are Medicare and Social Security the only things the federal government does that aren't up for debate or reform?
