Obama Pitches Health Care Reform

President Obama is taking his message to the people: At a town hall meeting in Virginia on Wednesday, the President “hugged a cancer patient Wednesday and vowed to bring greater efficiency and accessibility to the nation's health care system,” according to the Associated Press. President Obama called the woman, who is fighting kidney cancer without insurance or a job, “exhibit A” in the case to reform the health care system. "The biggest thing we can do to hold down costs is to change the incentives of a health care system that automatically equates expensive care with better care," he said. Obama also reiterated his support for a public option in his health care plan.
