In Iowa, Obama calls health bill pro-business

New York Times, March 26, 2010

President Obama began an aggressive White House public relations blitz to sell his newly signed healthcare overhaul to the public, calling the measure "pro-jobs" and "pro-business" and taunting Republicans who are vowing to repeal it. With polls showing the public still uncertain about the law, Obama will make a series of stops around the country in the coming weeks to tout its more popular provisions, including allowing young people to stay on their parents' health insurance plans until they turn 26, barring insurers from discriminating against people with pre-existing medical conditions, and granting tax credits to help small businesses cover their workers.
