Obama: Leaders Like Pelosi, Durbin 'Should Be Proud of What They've Done'

'We [the White House] could not have done it without them'

"And that's what the Affordable Care Act represents. As messy as it's been sometimes, as contentious as it's been, it is progress. It is making sure we are not the only advanced country on earth that doesn't make sure everybody has basic health care. And that is thanks in part to leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin and all the members of Congress who are here today. We could not have done it without them, and they should be proud of what they've done. They should be proud of what they've done."
