President Obama sought to tamp down fears Tuesday that his landmark healthcare law would raise insurance costs and cause other disruptions, saying most Americans were already benefiting from it and others soon would.

“Any time you’re implementing something big, there’s going to be people who are nervous,” the president said at a news conference at which he delivered a new pitch for the 2010 legislation. “For the average American out there, for the 85 and 90% of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened.”
