Obama mocks GOP on fifth anniversary of Affordable Care Act
Washington Post

President Obama delivered a staunch defense of the Affordable Care Act on the week of its fifth anniversary Wednesday as he continues his bid to frame the health care law as a success in the face of legal and political challenges from Republicans.

“It’s working despite countless attempts to repeal, undermine, defame and defund it,” Obama said during an event at the White House announcing a new network to help implement the law. “We’ve been promised a lot the past five years that didn’t turn out to bet the case: death panels, doom, a serious alternative from Republicans in Congress.”
