WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS) — President Obama held a news conference on Monday afternoon, at the White House. It comes before his final foreign trip as president.
The president discussed the Affordable Care Act going into the hands of Republicans after his presidency comes to an end in January.
“Now, suddenly you’re in charge and you’re going to repeal it,” President Obama said. “Ok, well what happens to those 20 million people who have health insurance? Are you going to just kick them off and suddenly they don’t have health insurance? In what ways are their lives better because of that? Now comes the hard part. Now is governance.”
The president also said on Monday that he would encourage republicans to allow immigrants who came to the country as children to remain in the United States.
