Health Care Reform We Can Believe In

Obama Retreats on Health-Care Bill

President Barack Obama expressed support for scaling back a health bill to "core elements," the first indication that the White House might be backing away from the type of broader overhaul that Congress had been working on.

Mr. Obama told ABC News that lawmakers should "move quickly to coalesce around" parts of the health-care bill that both parties can agree on, "core elements" that include insurance reform.

It's not clear why President Obama was hellbent on alienating Republicans from the process when he promised to be the President of All of Us.
