Advocate Says The President Missed An Opportunity to Talk About Health Care

The couple of mentions the President did make of his signature health reform policy were only to raise points about regulation and bipartisanship. 
OBAMA: "I will not go back to the days when health insurance companies had unchecked power to cancel your policy, deny your coverage, or charge women differently than men."
California health advocate Anthony Wright of Health Access says talk of economic security must include health care.

WRIGHT: "If the president is talking about this as a make or break moment for the middle class, one of the key components of that is people having financial security that comes with health insurance."

Wright says the Affordable Care Act made considerable progress in California last year. 
Hundreds of thousands of low income, young adults, and people with pre-existing conditions now have access to care they didn't have before.
