Obama weighs paring goals for health bill

New York Times, January 21, 2010

President Obama has signaled that he might be willing to scale back his proposed healthcare overhaul to a version that could attract bipartisan support, but it was not clear that even a stripped-down bill could get through Congress anytime soon, the New York Times reports. Inside the White House, top aides to the president said President Obama had made no decision on how to proceed, and insisted that his preference was still to win passage of a far-reaching healthcare measure that would extend coverage to more than 30 million people by 2019, reports the Times.
