Obama to Congress: Have the ‘Courage’ to Save Obamacare

Eight long years we waited finally to be rid of Barack H. Obama.

Alas, it would not be so. Breaking with longstanding tradition of non-political engagement after office, Obama — who’s not so hot on American tradition after all — stepped back into the fray while being presented with the Profiles in Courage Award at the JFK Library.

During his acceptance speech just days after the AHCA vote, he bid members of Congress to muster the ‘courage’ to save Obamacare.

Is it just us or was that oddly self-serving?

And yet quite on par for Mr. Obama.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

Barack Obama implored members of Congress to have the “courage” not to repeal the Affordable Care Act Sunday night.

The former president made his first public remarks about the proposed health care legislation just days after House Republicans voted to pass the measure 217 to 213. If it passes the Senate, it would repeal and replace major parts of Obamacare.

“As everyone here now knows, this great debate is not settled, but continues,” Obama said at the John F. Kennedy Library while accepting the annual Profile in Courage Award. “It is my fervent hope, and the hope of millions, that regardless of party, such courage is still possible. That today’s members of Congress, regardless of party, are willing to look at the facts and speak the truth, even when it contradicts party positions.”

“I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn’t take a lot of courage to aid those that are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential, but it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable, and the sick, and the infirmed,” he continued.
