resident Obama spoke Thursday afternoon, shortly after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold most of the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration's sweeping health care overhaul. The president called the 5-4 decision a victory for "people all over this country." Obama expressed the need for Americans to "move forward," and added that he didn't sign the law "because it's good politics," but "because it's good for the country." Congressional Republicans and the party's presumptive presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, have vowed to repeal the law.
