Obama: “Unprecedented” Effort to “Scare” Americans

September 24th, 2013

While Senator Ted Cruz is filibustering this unprecedented law, the 44th president told the 42nd President that Republicans are engaged in an “unprecedented” effort to “scare” Americans about Obamacare.

During an informal discussion at a Clinton Global Initiative Forum in New York City, Obama and former President Bill Clinton focused mostly on the policy details of the law, with the current commander in chief warning that Republicans have tried to “scare” people into declining to get health care coverage.

“You’ve had is an unprecedented effort that you’ve seen ramp up in the past month or so that those who have opposed the idea of universal health care in the first place — and have fought this thing tooth and nail through Congress and through the courts — trying to scare and discourage people from getting a good deal,” Obama said.
