Obama calls health plan a moral obligation

New York Times, August 20, 2009

As President Obama sought to reframe the healthcare debate as "a core ethical and moral obligation," he implored a coalition of religious leaders to help promote the plan to lower costs and expand insurance coverage for all Americans. "I know there's been a lot of misinformation in this debate, and there are some folks out there who are frankly bearing false witness," Obama told a multidenominational group of pastors, rabbis, and other religious leaders who support his goal to remake the nation's healthcare system.
