Speaking at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, where he was awarded the Profiles in Courage Award, Obama said a lot of freshman Democratic lawmakers found themselves tossed into the healthcare debate when they arrived in Washington. Though they knew voting for Obama’s healthcare bill might be unpopular back home, Obama said they felt it was the right thing to do.
