White House summit vows healthcare push

Boston Globe, February 24, 2009

A White House summit that opened discussions on how to make sweeping changes in entitlement programs concluded a pledge to immediately pursue an effort to provide health insurance to most Americans. President Obama said at the end of the "fiscal responsibility summit" that he will hold a similar meeting on healthcare, focused on how to provide coverage to most of the 47 million Americans who do not have insurance while also squeezing out savings by revamping the system.
