April 2, 2012
During a press conference at the White House attended by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon, President Barack Obama issued a bold statement to the Justices of the Supreme Court regarding his healthcare initiative, the Affordable Care Act, also know as "Obamacare".
Obama stated, "I'm confident this (Obamacare) will be upheld because it should be upheld". He went on to say that overturning the law would be "an unprecedented and extraordinary step", comparing a rejection of the law to judicial activism.
