Jack Lew: It's really time to get over the health care debate

Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Lew said the Affordable Care Act, which was signed into law in 2010, needs to be fully implemented before Americans assess its merit, and that detractors of the law, including Obama’s opponent in the 2012 presidential election, were using it to divide the country. …

“It’s time now to get over the debate and implement that law,” he told CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. “What the American people don’t want is, they don’t want to be taken back to the old divisive debate. They want to get on with it, and they want us to be focusing on economic growth and creating jobs.” …

“I think one of the great things about this country is that we have a Supreme Court and when it rules, we have a final judgment,” Lew said. “So there’s not a question now on whether or not the law is constitutional. It is constitutional.”
