Barack Obama Addresses Affordable Care Act

Former President Barack Obama was honored Sunday evening at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston where he accepted the Profile in Courage award. Mr. Obama took that time to thank Democrats who voted for the Affordable Care Act and then lost their seats in Congress. Obama noted those Democrats chose to look out for Americans as a whole, rather than taking the politically convenient route.

“These men and women did the right thing, the hard thing, and theirs was a profile in courage, and because of that vote, 20 million people got health insurance that didn’t have it before,” Obama said.

“I have said before that I believe what Dr. King said — that the arc of the moral universe bends, but it bends towards justice,” Obama said. “I have also said that it does not bend on its own, but it bends because we bend it, and we put our hand on the arc and we move it in the direction of justice and freedom and equality and kindness and generosity. It does not happen on its own.”
