White House presses on healthcare

Wall Street Journal, October 19, 2009

Obama administration officials are pushing back against opponents of the healthcare reform bill, seeking to maintain momentum for the measure as criticism continued from both Republicans and Democrats. Administration officials fired back at insurance companies and their Republican allies over what they described as their efforts to undermine the legislation in recent days. The officials reiterated comments by President Obama hinting at the possibility of limiting or revoking health insurers' antitrust exemption if they were to continue to fight the legislation.
