In a statement in the Rose Garden Thursday morning, President Barack Obama reacted to the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Obamacare subsidies, saying the law is “here to stay.”
Obama made the remark after pointing out all of the legal, legislative, and political challenges the law has faced from Republicans.
“Today, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law, after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law, after multiple challenges to this law before the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” Obama said.
“This morning, the court upheld a critical part of this law, the part that’s made it easier for Americans to afford health insurance regardless of where you live,” Obama added.
The president said later on that the law is now “woven into the fabric” of the nation, telling those in the crowd that it’s now time to “get back to work.”
