|The most arrogant President in American history|
Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Lew said the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010, needs to be fully implemented before Americans assess its merit, and that detractors of the law, including Obama’s opponent in the 2012 presidential election, were using it to divide the country.
“This was a plan that Gov. Romney supported,” Lew said, “and it’s something that I would have thought he would be proud of.”
The national debate over the law, which has been ongoing since the law was implemented, can now end with the court’s ruling, Lew said.
“It’s time now to get over the debate and implement that law,” he told CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. “What the American people don’t want is, they don’t want to be taken back to the old divisive debate. They want to get on with it, and they want us to be focusing on economic growth and creating jobs.”
