President Obama reframes critical healthcare debate

Obama had two overriding objectives for his speech, according to the Washington Post: First was to reassure and ultimately rally a skeptical public to get behind the drive for comprehensive healthcare reform, and second was to appease independents worried that his agenda threatens a fiscal disaster for the country.
