Obama, Clinton promote healthcare reform ahead of October 1 start

President Barack Obama teamed up with his one-time rivals Bill and Hillary Clinton on Tuesday to highlight the benefits of U.S. healthcare reform, a week before one of the controversial law’s key elements, new insurance exchanges, go live.

Obama, who was in New York for the U.N. General Assembly, joined the former president for a talk-show-like session at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) conference and urged Americans to become informed about measures designed to ensure millions of uninsured Americans get coverage.
