A spokesman for former President Barack Obama says that the Affordable Care Act "has always been about something bigger than politics."

In a statement, Kevin Lewis says that Obama "has always said we should build on this law, just as members of both parties worked together to improve Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid."

Lewis says tens of millions of people have benefited from improvements under the law including free preventive care such as mammograms and vaccines.

And it remains that way, Lewis says, "because of everyone who mobilized, organized and made their voices heard."
