Former President Obama Calls for ‘Courage’ to Fix Obamacare


Former President Obama said Congress must “demonstrate the necessary bipartisanship and political courage” to “build on” the Affordable Care Act, according to a statement by his spokesperson, Kevin Lewis. The former president emphasized his trademark legislation’s successes in health care availability, but also said that “there will always be more work to do” to make the country “stronger and healthier.” The statement comes after the Senate failed to pass a “skinny repeal” of the health care act on Thursday night, landing a seemingly final blow to the seven-year Republican effort to repeal Obamacare.
