Health Care Reform Delayed

Obama's prime-time health-care push may have been in vain: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has announced that the Senate won't pass any health-care reform until after the August recess. Instead, he says, they'll work to push a health care package through in the fall. It's the Republicans who have resisted the president's package so far, Reid says, and have asked for more time to complete the package. Says Reid: "It's better to get a product that's based on quality and thoughtfulness than on trying to just get something through." In a townhall meeting at Shaker Heights, Ohio Obama agreed: "I want to get it right."
