Obama asks African-American churches for help with health law

The Wall Street Journal, August 28, 2013
When President Barack Obama met with African-American religious leaders at the White House Monday in advance of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, he had a request: He asked for their help in the final push to implement the federal health care law. The president hosted representatives of major African-American denominations in the Roosevelt Room, where they discussed "how civil rights and equality are closely tied to voting rights and closing the gap on education, unemployment, and access to health care," White House said in a written statement. The president asked the leaders for their support this fall in signing up uninsured members of their congregations for health coverage, saying that around 7 million African Americans lack insurance.
