Obama: 8 Million Healthcare Enrollees, Now Let's Fix Some Potholes!
President Obama announced on Thursday that over eight million people had enrolled for Obamacare, which was why it was time to stop talking about whether the law was working or not.
“This thing is workin',” he said bluntly.
Obama told reporters that it was time to spend more time on the economy – particularly improving the country’s infrastructure.
“I guarantee you after this winter, if you look at the potholes that are the size of canyons all across big chunks of the United States, that people would like to see an infrastructure bill,” Obama said. “Let's get it done.”
Obama said that it was beyond time for Republicans to stop complaining about the law and trying to repeal it.
“I recognize that their party has gone through the stages of grief, anger, denial, and all that stuff,” he said. “We are not at acceptance yet.”
