Congressional Delegation Visits White House to Discuss Health Care Bill in Closed-Door Negotiations
Another congressional delegation went to the White House today to talk with President Obama about a health care bill -- and another congressional delegation left without talking to reporters.
What this means for the fate of Obama's health care initiative we can't say. As has been reported, these health care negotiations are very secret.
President Barack Obama and top Democrats tried shaping a final health overhaul bill on Wednesday in a White House meeting that underscored their desire to strike a quick deal on the administration's top domestic priority.
The president was meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and other Democratic leaders to narrow differences between the House and Senate over how generous the package's benefits should be and how to pay for them.
