I agree that Obama is wrong in this argument, but that's easy for me to do since I don't support Obamacare. Off hand I can't think of a good test case for my consistency, of a legal controversy where a law I strongly approve of would be crippled by a literal reading, to see whether I would take the same position.

It might be interesting to look over past statements by people on both sides of this issue to see if you could find examples of (say) Obama as senator arguing for strict reading of a law he didn't like, or Republicans who argued for the sort of loose reading Obama wants here in the case of a law they did like.
