As delays and frustrations from former supporters have further slowed momentum behind the President's signature healthcare reform law, Obama delivered a speech from the White House Thursday trying to sell the benefits of his plan.
"Every day, across the country and certainly here in the White House, there are people who are working as we speak to implement the Affordable Care Act and to deliver the security of quality, affordable health care to more Americans," Obama said.
The plan received another blow late Wednesday as the Republican controlled-House voted, with the help of some Democrats, to delay both the employer and individual mandates of Obamacare.
With the President's renewed enthusiasm to argue his reforms from the stump and his followers planning a large campaign renew public support for the law, the "Real News" panel Thursday discussed the ongoing politics of Obamacare.
