Democrats push ahead with healthcare

Wall Street Journal, March 1, 2010

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she intended to move forward on a broad Democratic healthcare bill, dismissing Republican calls for scrapping it and pursuing a step-by-step approach. President Barack Obama's televised summit with congressional leaders from both parties explored potential common ground on healthcare, but prospects for a bipartisan bill appeared dim. Pelosi said Democrats would still consider Republican ideas, but that jettisoning Obama's health plan as Republicans advocated wasn't "fertile territory." Instead, Democrats talked of proceeding alone, the Wall Street Journal reports.
