As Democrats seek to push through health bill, Obama reaches out to Republicans

Washington Post, March 3, 2010

Obama's gesture to include GOP-backed provisions on cutting health costs and preventing fraud appeared to strengthen the resolve of congressional Democrats, the Washington Post reports. Obama also expressed interest in a move by GOP lawmakers to increase payments to doctors who treat Medicaid patients, provided Congress address the issue "in a fiscally responsible manner."
