How Does “Obamacare” – the Affordable Care Act – Affect You? Tell Us Your Story – http://abcn.ws/GGvJiy

President Obama marks the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act with a new campaign video aimed at putting a face on the story of how “an unmet promise” of health insurance reform became the law of the land – he’s trying to re-sell the thing to a public where ⅔ of Americans think they shouldn’t have to buy health insurance if they don’t want to. (Remember when candidate Obama thought that?) – http://abcn.ws/GIcP4v

Obama on Solyndra: ‘This Was Not Our Program Per Se’ – Devin Dwyer – “Obviously, we wish Solyndra hadn’t gone bankrupt,” Obama said at the nation’s largest solar energy plant. “But understand: This was not our program per se.” … Obama rightly notes that Congress created with bipartisan support an Energy Department loan guarantee program for clean energy start-ups in 2005, during the George W. Bush administration. However, he incorrectly suggests Solyndra received its financing from that same 2005 program.  Instead, the company’s $500 million in fast-tracked loan guarantees came from an entirely new section of the program created under Obama by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as the stimulus. http://abcn.ws/GFTIe0

Steve King on Solyndra Investigations  – “I think leadership doesn’t want to be seen as using the gavels here for political purposes,” King said in an interview with The Hill. “I think there’s a bit of an aversion to that. Me? I have no reservations about that. This is politics.” http://bit.ly/GH6is4
