Barack Obama is grateful that the Affordable Care Act was save-Thanks to his supporters who save Obamacare.
Obamacare remains the law “because of everyone who mobilized, organized and made their voices heard,” a spokesman for Obama said in a statement following the GOP’s failed attempt to repeal parts of the legislation.
“President Obama has always said we should build on this law, just as members of both parties worked together to improve Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid over the years,” Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said. “President Obama still believes that it is possible for Congress to demonstrate the necessary bipartisanship and political courage to keep delivering on the promise of quality, affordable health insurance for every American.”
President Donald Trump has not gotten over the shock of losing out of repealing Obama when three Republican senators, along with all Democrats, voted against it.
Democratic groups flooded the halls of the Capitol and GOP town hall events around the country to protest the GOP’s repeal efforts.
“The Affordable Care Act has always been about something bigger than politics,” Obama’s statement said. “It’s about the character of our country…. It’s about the dreams protected, and the untold misery and ruin prevented.”
