Obama Drums on About Health Care

Another day, another political push from the White House over health-care reform. President Obama spoke from the Rose Garden Tuesday, addressing the delays in passing a sweeping health care reform bill. Blaming the GOP for their political motives, Obama said that Republicans "who openly announce their intentions to block this reform" would "rather score political points" than confront the "broken" system that leaves 46 million Americans uninsured. Obama urged politicians not to "play the politics of the moment instead of putting the interests of the people first," and urged them to adopt a new strategy of cooperation. His remarks come just one day after Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele called Obama's plan "an experiment" and agreed that this could be President Obama's Waterloo.
