Preaching To The Choir: Obama Tells Congressional Black Caucus He Will ‘Keep Marching’ On Obamacare, Gun Control

Speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual gala dinner over the weekend, President Barack Obama demonized Republicans and vowed to “keep marching” on issues such as gun control.

The President paid much lip service to the “extreme faction” of Republican lawmakers who are unwilling to negotiate over the Affordable Care Act.

“This is an interesting thing to ponder,” Obama said. “That your top agenda is making sure that 20 million people don’t have health insurance and you’d be willing to shut down the government and potentially default — for the time in United States history — because it bothers you so much that we’re actually going to make sure that everybody has affordable health care. Let me say as clearly as I can: It is not going to happen.”

He continued later, “It’s time for these folks to stop governing by crisis and start focusing on what really matters: Creating new jobs, growing our economy, expanding opportunity for ourselves, looking after our children, doing something about the violence out there. ”

The President went on to decry conservative efforts to thwart his gun control agenda.

“Just two days ago, in my hometown of Chicago, 13 people were shot during a pickup basketball game, including a 3-year-old girl,” he said. “Tomorrow night I’ll be meeting and mourning with families in this city who now know the same unspeakable grief of families in Newtown, and Aurora, and Tucson, and Chicago, and New Orleans, and all across the country — people whose loved ones were torn from them without headlines sometimes, or public outcry.

“We fought a good fight earlier this year, but we came up short, and that means we’ve got to get back up and go back at it,” the President continued.
