Today President Obama gave his final press conference of the 2013 year.
"If you're measuring this by polls, my polls have gone up and down a lot through the course of my career," Obama said. "If I was interested in polling, I wouldn't have run for president."
Instead, the President cited continuing economic growth after the recession he inherited when he took office in January 2009 and other progress such as what he said was more than 1 million people signing up for health insurance under the controversial reforms he championed.
"That is a big deal. That's why I ran for this office," Obama said.
Keep your eyes on the prize, America. Believe it or not, people are saving money on health insurance.
