President Obama Joins Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Terry McAuliffe For Celebration Of The  Affordable Care Act
  WASHINGTON
 – 
 Today, just over a month since the Administration launched HealthCare.gov, President Obama joined Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Terry McAuliffe for a campaign event in Arlington, Virginia. McAuliffe, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is a friend of the President
’s
 and a long-time supporter of his legislative priorities, including the Affordable Care Act.
Excerpts From Prepared Remarks of President Barack Obama Sunday, November 3, 2013
 Hello Virginia!  Are you all fired up or what! Let me hear you! Now,
I know you’re fired up for me, but I’m talking about m
y good friend, Terry McAuliffe.
Let’s hear it for Terry!
 
I’m
here today because Terry has always had my back 
 — 
alright maybe not in 2008
 — 
but ever since then.
He’s been
a vocal supporter for our legislative priorities, especially the Affordable Care Act. Terry even wanted the public option and was just as disappointed as
I was when that didn’t work out.
 You all know that Republicans like Ken Cuccinelli are doing everything possible to stop the law. They are grossly misleading the public, saying I
 wasn’t honest with
 you all when I said if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Can you believe that?
 
Sure I said that
 — 
but you all know what I meant! I meant most of you all!
It’s not like I prefaced
it with
―read my lips‖ or anything 
. Look, no one is more upset than I am with how this rollout has gone, but Ro
me wasn’t built in one day.
Sure I  would have liked to see more than six people sign up on the first day, but change is never supposed to be easy. It
doesn’t h
appen overnight,
heck, it doesn’t happen in five years either. Fortunately, I’m going to have a partner in Terry McAuliffe
right here in Virginia when it comes to ObamaCare!
 Terry has made clear that he’s relying on
the law 
 — 
through Medicaid expansion
 — 
 
to pay for his platform and I’m
glad to hear that.  And in fact,
I’ve been reading that Terry’s stumbled onto something interest
ing 
…profiting on the death of
others.  You know the old saying 
there are two things that are certain: death and taxes.
I’ve got to hand it to Terry, not even ObamaCare’s death panels were abl
e to accomplish that.
If there’s one thing Terry and I have in common, it’s a lifelong love of big 
-government policies.
But that’s not the only thing we have in common.
 Terry and I are both authors. When Terry started writing his memoir, he called me for advice. He had read
Dreams of My Father
and
The Audacity of Hope 
, and wanted to get my two cents. My advice to him was simple: speak from the heart, let people get a sense of who the real Terry McAuliffe is,
and most of all, don’
t hold anything back. I was pleased when I saw that Terry took my advice. Before we took the stage today, Terry told me he knew exactly what I meant when
said ―if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that.‖ He’s got that car company down in Mississippi and they’re not building cars and that pellet company down in Franklin that doesn’t make any pellets. Nobody’s working harder than Terry McAuliffe to prove
that people in business d
idn’t build anything 
!  Ah come on Terry, you know I love you! Hillary may be likeable enough, but I just love Terry McAuliffe
 – 
 no matter what he told Jon Stewart.
 All of you Democrats here in Northern Virginia need to make sure you vote, because there’s a lot of folks out there
in the rest of Virginia still clinging to their guns and religion and those folks are going to vote.
 You know, unlike my last opponent, Terry McAuliffe can actually prove he’s created 100,000 jobs…oh wait…he can’t prove it…I mean, unlike my last opponent, everyone’s giving Terry McAuliffe a
 pass on his claim to have created 100,000 jobs.  And I also want to give a big shout out to
The Washington Post 
, after relentlessly tormenting my opponent about
releasing his tax returns last year they’ve done Terry McAuliffe quite the favor by not demandi
ng the same of him.
 Tomorrow, some of you will hear from Vice President Biden… Uncle Joe as we like to call him in the West Wing.  With any luck, he’ll talk about binders…binders full of Chinese investors…b
inders full of Chinese investors that my friend Terry and his company successfully duped for millions.
 Way to go man…that’s quite an economic
feat as opposed to owing them trillions.  And finally, I want to clear one thing up and
let everyone know that I’m not the least bit concerned about the DHS
and SEC investigations that involve Terry McAuliffe. From my staff in the White House, to the folks in the Vice
President’s office, to the folks at DHS – 
 
my administration has gone above and beyond to help McAuliffe’s GreenTech and I’m not about to let
a couple federal probes by my own administration dampen my support for
