Former President Barack Obama is not amused with the new administration tearing down his healthcare legacy.
On Sunday night, while speaking at the John F. Kennedy Library, Obama advised members of Congress to find the “courage” not to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“As everyone here now knows, this great debate is not settled, but continues,” Obama said. “It is my fervent hope, and the hope of millions, that regardless of party, such courage is still possible. That today’s members of Congress, regardless of party, are willing to look at the facts and speak the truth, even when it contradicts party positions.”
“I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn’t take a lot of courage to aid those that are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential, but it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable, and the sick, and the infirmed,” he continued. “Those who often have no access to the corridors of power.”
“I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right.”
