Obama presses Democrats on healthcare bill

Washington Post, December 7, 2009

President Obama made a rare Sunday visit to the Capitol to urge a fractious Democratic caucus to pull together to pass landmark healthcare legislation, the Washington Post reports. Obama used the 45-minute session to stress the Senate's "historic opportunity to provide stability and security for those who have insurance, affordable coverage for those who don't, and bring down the cost of healthcare for families, small businesses, and the government," White House spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement. The Senate will reconvene Dec. 7 for an eighth day of debate and potentially the first controversial amendment, addressing the issue of abortion coverage.
