President Obama to highlight cost in new health bill push

New York Times, March 2, 2010

President Obama is set to begin a push to rally Congressional Democrats to pass major healthcare legislation with the argument that the costs of failure will be higher insurance premiums and lost coverage for individuals and businesses, the New York Times reports. Officials indicate Obama will contrast Democrats' proposals for expanding coverage and for regulating insurance company practices with what he sees as the shortcomings of the Republicans' incremental plans, reports the Times.
