Pelosi on health care law: ‘Step back and see the bigger picture’

Nancy Pelosi, one of the key architects of the embattled Affordable Care Act, made it clear Sunday she is still an ardent supporter.

“We have to completely step back and see the bigger picture,” the House Minority Leader told NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“What I love about health care professionals is that they are calm, and we must remain calm when we talk about the health of our country. The Affordable Care Act is right up there with Social Security, Medicare, affordable care for all Americans as a right, not a privilege.”
