Obama Defends Healthcare Law ahead of SCOTUS Ruling

Hosted by

The US Supreme Court will soon rule on the case of King v. Burwell, which challenges the validity of Obamacare subsidies for millions of people who don't get health insurance through an employer. Today, the President defended the Affordable Care Act against its opponents in a speech to the Catholic Health Association.

"It seems so cynical to want to take coverage away from millions of people, to take care away from people who need it the most, to punish millions with higher costs of care and unravel what's now been woven into the fabric of America."
