Obama: It's 'Frustrating' To Have To Convince Lawmakers Not To Inflict 'Real Human Suffering'
Former President Barack Obama said it?s ?frustrating to have to mobilize? so often to keep lawmakers from repealing the Affordable Care Act. Speaking at a Gates Foundation event on Wednesday, Obama addressed a health care bill Republicans are trying to hurry through Congress that could have major ramifications for millions of people. ?When I see people trying to undo that hard-earned progress for the 50th or 60th time, with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage, or roll back protections for older Americans or people with pre-existing conditions ... for whom coverage would, once again, be almost unobtainable, it is aggravating,? Obama said.
