A week away from the Affordable Care Act’s enrollment deadline, President Obama is pushing the accomplishments of his landmark health care legislation.

“This is health care in America today: affordable, portable security for you and your loved ones,” Mr. Obama said in a video released Saturday. “It’s making a difference for millions of Americans every day. And it’s only going to get better.”

The president ticked off several metrics on America’s current health insurance coverage rates, including the nearly 18 million individuals that have gained coverage since the ACA took effect.
