Obama pledges to own healthcare bill

Wall Street Journal, September 14, 2009

President Barack Obama, continuing his push to secure support for a healthcare overhaul, reiterated his willingness to address the issue of medical malpractice suits, a Republican priority. But the president suggested that his desire for a bipartisan bill wouldn't trump his ultimate goal of passing legislation this year. "We're not going to get a better opportunity to solve our healthcare issues than we have right now," he said in an interview on CBS's "60 Minutes."
