Obama zeroes in on healthcare coverage with stimulus signed
President Barack Obama will use the budget proposal he submits to Congress to outline how to pay for expanding medical coverage to all Americans, said an administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Obama, on Feb. 24, will speak to a joint gathering of the House and Senate. Two days later, he will submit his budget plan to lawmakers. The push from Obama will help Congress get to work on the overhaul, said Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat.
