The White House is enlisting the help of Former President Bill Clinton to help push Obamacare.

Former President Bill Clinton delivering remarks in his home state of Arkansas trying to make the case the Obamacare is good for the people.

Republicans say the law is taking a nosedive in popularity.

Clinton kicking off an educational push of Obamacare by addressing a gathering at the Clinton Presidential Center saying affordable and accessible health care is key to any country's economic and social well being.

"The health of our people, the security and stability of our families are all riding on getting healthcare reform right and doing it well."

The Former President telling the crowd any law will have it's strong and weak points but it's up to lawmakers to protect the health of the American people.

"It is the law and I think we've all got an interest in trying to faithfully execute the law."

Clinton said repeatedly while the plan may not be perfect, he urged all parties to come together for the benefit of the country on not only a physical but economic level as well.

"We are number one by a country mile in the percentage of our income we devote to health care costs and rank no better than 25th to 33rd in the health care outcomes we get."

The RNC now has it's own website to point out the problems in the law and some believe the speech won't help the administration's efforts to gather support for the plan.

"If one speech could solve the problem of the Affordable Care Act, it would have been solved a long time ago."

Clinton's speech is the first in a series by administration officials and allies before open enrollment for the insurance exchanges begin on October 1st.
