U.S. News and World Report

Though President Barack Obama steered clear of the details of the Affordable Care Act in his State of the Union speech Tuesday, not mentioning that enrollment still was ongoing or that the law faces political and legal opposition, health care was still underscored as key to economic recovery.   

Dr. Matthew Davis, professor of pediatrics, internal medicine, public policy and health management and policy at the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation at the University of Michigan, says he thinks Obama took the coming political and legal battles into account when crafting his speech. "He wanted to make certain that he made use of his State of the Union to talk about other initiatives other than the ones in health care, since those are likely to dominate the headlines during the coming months," he says.
