WASHINGTON -- President Obama vigorously defended his landmark health care overhaul Friday during a fund-raising speech to about 4,500 supporters at the University of Vermont in Burlington.
With his sleeves rolled up, Obama outlined a laundry list of accomplishments during his first term, including withdrawing troops from Iraq, ending the ban on gays in the military, reforming student loans to make college more affordable, and rescuing an auto industry on the verge of collapse.
Obamas health care remarks were met by wild applause and whistles from the audience.

If youre willing to work harder in this election than you did in the last one, I promise you, change will come . . . We will finish what we started in 2008. Fight with me and press on with me.
General admission tickets for the sold-out event started at $100 per person, with $44 student tickets available.
