Obama Responds to a GOP Line of Attack

Speaking of the administration's push to reform health care, over the weekend Republican Senator Jim DeMint told a conference call that: "If we're able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo, it will break him and we will show that we can along with the American people, begin to push those freedom solutions that work in every area of our society."

Today, speaking at Children's National Medical Center in DC, President Obama responded with this: "Think about that. This isn't about me. This is about politics. This is about a health care system that is breaking America's families, breaking America's businesses, and breaking America's economy."
