Mayor Emanuel, on Supreme Court health care ruling: Obama's leadership needed 'to bend the needle of history'

June 28, 2012 (CHICAGO)

"This is -- in my view -- a historic day," Emanuel said. "The president took the leadership and courage that was necessary to bend the needle of history and -- in my view-- economic fairness."

Emanuel addressed the health care ruling, as well as violence on Chicago's streets, at a press conference to announce that Federal Savings Bank will open a national home loan center in the West Loop, bringing 400 jobs to its new facility.
