Leverage sought in health summit

Wall Street Journal, February 9, 2010

Both the White House and congressional Republicans see opportunity in an upcoming bipartisan summit on healthcare, the Wall Street Journal reports. Republicans have rejected outright any health legislation that doesn't start from scratch, but the White House reiterated it has no intention of changing its fundamental approach. Still, the White House hopes the televised meeting will change the tone of the healthcare debate by showing Democrats are open to Republican ideas, many of which are already in their bills, the Journal reports.
