Obama to Hit the Road for Health Care

More

As he gave his closing argument for health care reform today in the East Room at the White House, President Obama pledged he'll do all he can to press for health care reform until it's passed.

"I have therefore asked leaders in both of Houses of Congress to finish their work and schedule a vote in the next few weeks.  From now until then, I will do everything in my power to make the case for reform," Obama said.

It appears he's making good on the pledge: as he finished speaking, the White House e-mailed out a press release announcing the president will travel to Philadelphia and St. Louis on March 8 and 10, respectively, to discuss health care reform.
