Dems embrace Obama health law

The Hill, September 7, 2012

On Tuesday's opening night, speaker after speaker championed the 2010 Affordable Care Act, a trumpeting that was striking for a law that top Democrats had largely sidelined because of its lingering unpopularity with the public. As Obama seeks reelection, his allies have returned to heralding the law as a historic and courageous political achievement.
