President Obama Pushes Health Care Reform on Talk Shows on Five Different Television Networks

President Obama said that he did not promise too much in terms of health care legislation and continued to defend his plan during a Friday taping of "Face the Nation" at the White House.

The president told CBS News chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer that, in detailing his health care proposals, he is attempting to warn Americans that the federal budget cannot sustain the current system and "a lot of Americans are going to be much worse off over time."

President Obama appeared on five morning talk shows today on five different networks -- a move unprecedented for an American president.
