Obama: This Is a ‘Victory’ for All

President Obama said Thursday that the Supreme Court’s upholding of his signature piece of the legislation, the 2010 Affordable Care Act, is a “victory for people all over this country.” Saying “I obviously didn’t do it because it was good politics. I did it because I believed it was good for the country,” the president assured Americans that the new law means that nobody will lose his or her health insurance—and that insurance companies will not be able to bill you into bankruptcy. “Five years from now, 10 years from now, and 20 years from now, we’ll be better off because we had the courage to keep moving forward,” Obama said.
