Obama discusses challenges of reform law implementation
Modern Healthcare

President Barack Obama referred to Republican efforts to repeal the healthcare reform law as an “ideological fixation” during a White House news conference Friday.

While most of his comments focused on the ongoing issues associated with the National Security Agency’s surveillance program, Obama briefly discussed the political and operational challenges the administration has faced in implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It was Obama’s first news conference since April.
