Senators set to visit White House to discuss healthcare overhaul

New York Times, June 2, 2009

President Obama will meet with influential Senate Democrats to discuss overhauling healthcare, as the White House releases a report asserting that revamping the system would increase the income of a typical family of four by $2,600 in 2020, and by $10,000 in 2030. The Democrats on two Senate committees that are drafting health legislation have been invited to the White House to meet with Obama. As part of a push to secure Congressional passage of a bill this year, the administration will also make the case that reforming healthcare is critical to fixing the economy.
