President speaks on health reform

Posted in DC Reform by raisingwomensvoices on July 24, 2009

A few days ago Barack Obama spoke out in a news conference about health insurance reform. He stated that congress still has “a few things to work out” and that “this debate is not a game…they [average Americans] are counting on us to get this done”. He spoke for about ten minutes and then spent the large part of an hour answering questions. He sounded pretty upbeat: “What’s remarkable at this point not is how far we have left to go, it’s how far we’ve already come”, and he’s be backing off the time limit since it doesn’t look like bills will go to the floor of the senate before the August recess. But maybe before the end of the year?
