President Obama is adamant that Congress embrace his healthcare reform proposals and continues to work to push the issue forward.
Obama communicated that he understood many in Congress were opposed to his reform plans, telling press and officials "I know that there are those in this town who openly declare their intention to block reform." He maintains that he will keep his attention focused on helping the American people.
"We can choose action over inaction," he explained, urging the wary to approve his point of view. "We can build on the extraordinary common ground that’s been forged, and we can do the hard work needed to finally pass the health insurance reform that the American people deserve."
It seems that Obama also wants to remind Congress and the public that his plans are intended to unite, not divide those of opposing views, working for the greater good. "I look forward to working with Congress in the days ahead to getting the job done," he said.
