Obama says healthcare reform will boost exports

U.S. President Obama, speaking on trade policy Thursday at a meeting with his Export Council, says healthcare reform will boost exports.

He spoke about the fifth anniversary of the financial crisis and the recovery.

“We have worked our way back because of the incredible grit and resilience of the American people; because of the outstanding dynamism of our business sectors; because of, I think, some timely work on the part of this administration and other agencies to make sure that we were responsive to the immediate needs of the American people,” Obama said.
