Obama administration finds healthcare model in Green Bay

In his drive to rein in healthcare costs, President Obama is increasingly focused on wasteful medical care that does not extend life and may actually be harmful. A town-hall-style meeting, his first as president to promote health reform, is intended to spotlight one city's strategy for squeezing out waste without hurting quality.
