NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — President Barack Obama says he'd like to see a bipartisan effort by Tennessee lawmakers in finding a solution to extend health care coverage.

Obama visited an elementary school in a northeast Nashville neighborhood on Wednesday where he spoke to about 70 people and reporters about his Affordable Care Act, which was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court a week earlier.

The White House had said Obama wasn't going to focus on Republican Gov. Bill Haslam's failed plan to expand Medicaid in Tennessee.
