Obama on Thursday set out to pitch the law known as “Obamacare,” five days before the start of a six-month sign-up period for millions of uninsured Americans.
House Republicans are inserting provisions that undermine the health care law into a short-term spending measure needed to avoid a government shutdown on Oct. 1 and into legislation that would increase the government’s borrowing ability, which the Treasury says will hit its limit in mid-October.
Obama says, quote, “that’s not going to happen as long as I’m president.” He says critics are, quote, “threatening steps that actually would hurt our entire economy.”
