Obama on the GOP health-care plan: ‘This bill will do you harm.’ http://wapo.st/2s0NbYd?tid=ss_tu&utm_term=.2ba1f3dd53ff

While Obama has repeatedly defended the Affordable Care Act, which represents perhaps his most significant domestic legislative achievement, Thursday’s statement was even more pointed than his previous comments. Calling the GOP leadership’s bill “a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America,” he called on Americans to push back against congressional Republicans.

“Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family — this bill will do you harm,” the former president wrote. “And small tweaks over the course of the next couple weeks, under the guise of making these bills easier to stomach, cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.” http://wapo.st/2s0NbYd?tid=ss_tu&utm_term=.2ba1f3dd53ff
