Obama Launches New Push To Sell Healthcare Law: ‘We’re Not Going Back’
TIME Online Edition

President Barack Obama kicked off a new push to spotlight the benefits of his signature health care overhaul Tuesday, vowing to keep fighting for the law amid a barrage of criticism over its troubled rollout.

“We’re not going back,” Obama said, flanked by people who the White House said are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act. Obama urged Americans to “refocus on what’s at stake.”

Obama’s brief speech near the White House marked the start of a three-week education campaign ahead of the Dec. 23 deadline for individuals to sign up for insurance coverage beginning Jan. 1.
