'I Don't Get It': Obama Attacks ObamaCare Critics for Trying To 'Scare' People
"Obviously, it's had its share of critics. That's part of what change looks like in a Democracy. Change is hard. Fixing what is broken is hard. Overcoming skepticism and fear of something new is hard. A lot of times folks would prefer the devil they know to the devil they don't. But this law is doing what it's supposed to do. It's working, it's helping people from coast-to-coast. All of which makes the lengths to which critics have gone to scare people or undermine the law or try too repeal the law, without offering any plausible alternative, so hard to understand. I got to admit, I don't get it. Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance? Why are they so mad about the idea of folks having health insurance?"
