Obama says health care law 'here to stay'

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is rallying support for his health care law, saying the law has already provided an array of benefits and will now give those without insurance a chance to obtain it.

In Obama's words, "The law is here to stay."

The president made his remarks Friday at the White House during a Mother's Day-inspired event designed to encourage young people to sign up for health insurance "exchanges" that open this fall.

Obama points out that women now have access to free preventable health care such as mammograms.
