Health Care Reform

Readout of President Obama’s Meeting With Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–August 21, 2009.

“The President invited Senator Daschle to the White House for a quick check-in on the health insurance reform process and to exchange views on the process moving forward. Senator Daschle is one of the foremost experts on health care and on the legislative process, and has been a friend and sounding-board for the President for several years. The two agreed that substantive reform that lowers costs, reforms the insurance industry, and expands coverage is too important to wait another year or another administration, and they agreed to stay in touch over the coming weeks and months as this critical effort moves forward.”
