WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama admonished House Republicans on Tuesday to quit fighting his three-year-old health care law and to “reopen the government,” a show of defiance that reflected Democrats’ confidence that conservatives have overreached after years of budget battles with the White House.
“As long as I am president, I will not give in to reckless demands by some in the Republican Party to deny affordable health insurance to millions of hardworking Americans,” Obama said from the Rose Garden, flanked by new beneficiaries of the insurance program.
