Nutter has no health care suggestions for Obama

    Last week, President Obama said he is open to ideas to improve the federal health law saying “anything can be improved.”

    But on Tuesday Philadelphia’s mayor said at the moment he doesn’t have any suggestions for bettering the Affordable Care Act.

    Michael Nutter said his constituents aren’t complaining about the health law, but they are worried about the push to repeal the changes.

    “This is nothing but political mischief driven by agendas, again, by folks who have jobs, have health care and want to take it away from other Americans,” he said.

    Nutter joined Pennsylvania Sen. Robert Casey, Jr. during a conference call organized by the White House. Casey said he wants to make sure Americans understand the stakes if the law is repealed.
