NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Saying attacks on his health care overhaul are mostly political, President Barack Obama asked Americans to keep an open mind as the enrollment period for plans nears, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported.
In an onstage conversation with former President Bill Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative in Midtown, President Barack Obama asked people to tune out the critics. On Oct. 1, uninsured Americans can start shopping for health care plans through state-run online marketplaces.
“What we’re saying is just look for yourself,” Obama said. “And you will discover that this is a good deal for you.”
