Obama Pledges to Make New Health Care Law Work

Saturday, 17 Aug 2013 07:34 AM

 

President Barack Obama is pledging to do everything he can to make sure the new health care law works the way he intended.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama criticized congressional Republicans, who he says are trying to confuse people about the law. He targets other Republican opponents for threatening to eliminate funding for the law or shut down the government if they don't get their way.

The president says a lot of Republicans think he'll suffer if they make the law fail. But if that happens, he says they'd just be "sticking it" to the people.

In the Republican address, West Virginia Rep. Shelley Moore Capito argues for a delay in the requirement that uninsured consumers buy health care coverage or pay fines.
