In Ohio, Obama says he will not walk away from healthcare fight

Washington Post, January 25, 2010

With some top Democrats suggesting a temporary break from healthcare negotiations after the election of a Republican senator in heavily Democratic Massachusetts, President Obama said he would still push for a healthcare reform plan, although his party no longer has a filibuster-proof majority. Obama explained to an audience in Ohio that healthcare reform was part of his effort to address the economic security that has been eroding for most middle-class Americans, the Washington Post reports.
