Obama stays on offense with healthcare proposal

Washington Post, February 23, 2010

After speculation that the White House would narrow its ambitions for healthcare legislation after the loss of the Democrats' filibuster-proof Senate majority, President Obama's proposal adheres to the bills on which Congress has worked on for months, the Washington Post reports. The decision emerged quickly inside the White House after senior advisers to President Obama concluded privately that his goals for comprehensive changes to the healthcare system could not be done piecemeal, reports the Post.
