Health Care

Obama Assails Insurance Companies

In his final push for health care, President Obama is focusing his ire on insurance companies instead of Republicans. In a town hall in Philadelphia on Monday, Obama said, “And they will keep doing this for as long as they can get away with it. So how much higher do premiums have to rise until we do something about it?” Obama will push for health care until March 18—the deadline he has set for the House to pass the bill and also the date when he begins a trip to Asia.
