President Obama used his weekly radio address to explain how the health care bill has already helped millions of Americans.

Some 4 million small-business owners and organizations have been told of a possible health care tax cut this year, Obama said. On June 15, some older people with high prescription drug costs will receive $250 to help fill a gap in Medicare’s pharmaceutical benefits.

“Already we are seeing a health care system that holds insurance companies more accountable and gives consumers more control,” the president said.

Obama said Anthem Blue Cross dropped a proposed 39 percent premium increase on Californians after his administration demanded an explanation. He said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wrote to all states “urging them to investigate other rate hikes and stop insurance companies from gaming the system.”

Republicans continue to run on repeal of something that is benefiting millions of Americans, without presenting any new ideas of their own.
