“We’ve got a lot more work to do. But all across America, there are people who have jobs today that didn’t have them because of the work that we did. There are people who have health insurance today who didn’t have it before because of the work that we did. There are students who are going to college for the first time because we’ve made that possible. There are veterans who served tour after tour who are now home with their families and are getting help that they have not only earned but that will help make our country stronger. That’s what change looks like.” —President Obama to Democratic State Legislators
