WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he doesn’t expect Republicans to agree with his health care law, but he’s urging his political opponents to give up their repeated attempts to do away with it.

Obama said in his State of the Union address Tuesday night that more than 40 votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act were plenty. He told members of Congress, quote, “We all owe it to the American people to say what we’re for, not just what we’re against.”

He also used the opportunity in his high-profile speech to ask Americans to encourage those they know without insurance to sign up on government exchanges by the end of March. That’s the deadline for Americans to get coverage or face a tax penalty.
