Obama open to health overhaul without public plan

Wall Street Journal, June 25, 2009
President Barack Obama signaled flexibility on a key healthcare issue, suggesting he is open to an overhaul that doesn't include a government-run program to compete with private insurers. At a White House news conference, Obama said he hasn't laid down any absolutes about what must be included in healthcare legislation except that it must control costs and help those without insurance or with inadequate coverage.
