Obama: Health Law ‘Here to Stay’

President Obama said his healthcare law is here to stay during a sweltering campaign stop in swing-state Ohio on Thursday.

Obama touted the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold his signature healthcare reform legislation to cheers from a crowd of his supporters.

“The law I passed is here to stay,” he told an audience composed largely of Ohio automobile manufacturing workers.

Obama’s comments are the closest he’s come to “spiking the football” on the Supreme Court’s decision, which surprised many observers. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s liberal justices in ruling the healthcare mandate is constitutional because it is a tax. It’s the first time Obama has mentioned the ruling on the campaign trail.

Later, at a campaign stop in Sandusky, Ohio, Obama told a crowd of about 350 people that with the Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold the bulk of the law, it was time for Republicans to move on.

    I cannot believe some of the people really believe his speeches, either that or his writers are out to get him. His speeches are full of unbelievable falsehoods. Anyone who votes for him this time are only fooling themselves, or are communists. If you are a communist build yourself a raft and row your a__ to cuba.

    Is Obama another Dorian Gray? He certainly is as narcissistic and ego-centric and the doer of evil deeds. His “portrait” must be more hideous than Doriam’s!

    I am afraid he is right. With roberts turning his back on his country like a tratoir How much is yet be see could have been 30 in gold. romneys pac are makeing lots money off the healthcare bill and some there say we have to have it. romney for sure isnt a conservative and is very much like obambo . Both are big time liars obambo was smart enough to still romneys health plan. With out a real conservative running i can even see obambo winning again. There seem to not be enough that beleave in GOD that vote for the right reason

  15. jerry1944 says:

    I wonder how obambo feels stealing romneys health plan and claiming it as his But i guess thats what we get when we put weak mods up against libs. Both are the same and not much choice
