Obama strategy on healthcare legislation appears to be paying off

New York Times, November 2, 2009

After months of work by five Congressional committees and weeks of back-room bargaining by Democratic leaders, President Obama's arms-length strategy on healthcare appears to be paying dividends with the House and the Senate poised to take up legislation to insure nearly all Americans, reports the New York Times. Debate in the House is expected to begin this week, and the Senate will soon take up its version. Democratic leaders and senior White House officials are sounding increasingly confident that President Obama will sign legislation overhauling the nation's healthcare system, according to the Times.
