President Obama thinks the health care bill will live on even if Democratic candidate Martha Coakley loses tonight.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said today Obama is going to keep on with health care regardless of the election result, and dodged question after question about a possible Coakley loss.

“Let’s wait for the results,” Gibbs said repeatedly.

Asked specifically if the fate of health care rides on the election result, Gibbs said Obama does not believe that.

“Health care is a priority for him now, it will be a priority for him tomorrow,” Gibbs said.
