Obama speech aims to reenergize healthcare effort

Washington Post, September 9, 2009

President Obama will seek to rally Congress to pass healthcare reform in a prime-time address today, as lawmakers continue struggling to reach broad consensus on some of the toughest issues in the debate. Obama discussed his address at length with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid at the White House. Reid said that the president's goal is "to reenergize the way to do healthcare reform" while clearing up "ridiculous falsehoods" repeated at hundreds of town hall meetings by opponents of the Democratic-led effort.
