President Barack Obama says he's open to efforts to "tweak" his health care overhaul, but will not stand by while Republicans try to take it apart.
Obama spoke Friday to the consumer advocacy group Families USA,
which has strongly supported the new health law.
The Republican-controlled House voted last week to repeal the
law. But the White House dismissed that as an empty gesture, since
the Democratic-run Senate's unlikely to respond.
Obama told a cheering audience that GOP complaints that the law
is a job-killing monstrosity are already being proven untrue. And
he added, "I can report that Granny is safe."
