Obama Would Accept Tweaks of Health Care Law


“President Obama ridiculed lingering opposition to his 10-month-old health care law Friday and vowed to oppose efforts to repeal it, underscoring his commitment to his signature legislative achievement despite the new reality of a divided Congress. Days after delivering a State of the Union message in which he called on Democrats and Republicans to work together, Mr. Obama made clear in a speech to supporters that he’s open to compromise on the issue only on the margins — a ‘tweak’ here or there, but not major changes.” (Washington Times)

One person’s repeal is another person’s tweak.
