Barack Obama Responds To Republicans Constantly Trying To Repeal Obamacare—And He Didn’t Hold Back

By Mark Pygas

Former President Barack Obama has spoken out about the latest attempt by Republicans to repeal his signature legislation, the Cassidy-Graham bill. It's believed that the bill could see 15 million Americans lose their insurance next year, with more than 30 million losing their insurance over the next decade by gutting Medicaid expansion and expanding control to individual states.  

At the Gates Foundation’s "Goalkeepers" event in New York on Wednesday, Obama said:

“When I see people trying to undo that hard-won 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 -- the cancer survivor, the expecting mom or the child with autism, or asthma, for whom coverage once again would be almost unattainable -- it is aggravating.”
