A spokesperson for President Barack Obama issued a statement regarding the Senate's failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act, saying that Obama "believes it is still possible for Congress to demonstrate the necessary bipartisanship and political courage" to improve upon the law together.

Summing it up: "The Affordable Care Act has always been about something bigger than politics — it's about the character of our country…It's about the dreams protected, and the untold misery and ruin prevented."
