Obama renews health push

Wall Street Journal, February 23, 2010

In an effort to salvage his healthcare overhaul, President Obama unveiled a $950 billion plan that lays the groundwork for his party to try pushing its legislation through Congress without Republican support. Obama's plan, released ahead of a televised health summit with congressional leaders, did not include any additional nods to Republican ideas. Republican leaders denounced it, but White House aides said the president was prepared to incorporate Republican ideas into the framework set by the Democratic bill, the Wall Street Journal reports.
