obama healthcare

President Obama touted his signature healthcare law Friday, dismissing Republican “fearmongering” and arguing that the law is working.

“Since everybody’s been saying how it’s not going to happen, I think it’s important for us to recognize and acknowledge this is working the way it’s supposed to,” Obama said in a brief speech in San Jose, Calif.

Obama’s pitch for the healthcare law comes at a crucial time. The administration, along with state governments, is just months away from opening new insurance marketplaces and beginning to enroll millions of people in new coverage options.
