Speaking in Iowa City, Iowa today, President Obama was interrupted by an audience member who was upset because a government-run health insurance “public” option wasn’t included in the new law.
The President went off of his prepared remarks and told the attendee that he and Democratic leaders “couldn’t get it through Congress.”
Mr Obama went on to say that this law is “a historic step” that “enshrines the principle that everyone gets health care coverage in this country, every single person.”
And while the President insisted that the new law is “middle of the road,” he told the applauding crowd that it “moves us in the direction of universal health care coverage.”
