HIS NEXT BATTLE

Obama Demands Health Care Action

President Obama is everywhere at once it seems, with appearances in France today as well as a new Youtube video calling on lawmakers to pass health care reform. As Barack comemorates D-Day in Normandy and visits Paris with Michelle and the kids, Congress is preparing major legislation on the issue—and Obama refuses to be out of the loop. The president has been laying out an outline for his ideal plan and making the case for action throughout the week. "All across America, our families are making hard choices when it comes to health care," Obama said today in his video address. "Now it's time for Washington to make the right ones. It's time to deliver." Citing figures that Americans will spend one out of five dollars on health care within a decade, Obama said that "fixing what's wrong with our health care system is no longer a luxury we hope to achieve; it's a necessity we cannot postpone any longer."
