One day before the five-year anniversary of passage of the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama proclaimed late Sunday that his signature healthcare legislation a success and its critics should “embrace reality.”
In a statement released on WhiteHouse.gov, Obama said, “This law is working, and in many ways, it’s working even better than anticipated.”
The president signed Obamacare into law on March 23, 2010.
The law has undergone “more scrutiny, more rumor, more attempts to dismantle and undermine it than just about any law in recent history,” Obama admitted.
But he had a word for Republicans still working to repeal and replace the controversial law.
