Obama steers health debate out of capital
President Obama is trying to enlist the nation's governors and his own army of grass-roots supporters in a bid to increase pressure on lawmakers that are divided in regards to healthcare legislation. In a meeting with five governors, Obama privately urged them to serve as his emissaries to Congress. He even coached them on the language they should use with lawmakers, two of the governors said, advising them to avoid terms like "rationing" and "managed care," which evoke memories of the Clintons' failed health initiative.
