Obama meets govs, hosts health care town hall
WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama continues to tackle health care issues today.
He'll meet with a bipartisan group of governors who co-hosted regional forums on health reform earlier this year. They include Democrats Jennifer Granholm of Michigan, Jim Doyle of Wisconsin and Christine Gregoire of Washington, and Republicans Jim Douglas of Vermont and Mike Rounds of South Dakota.
The White House says the meeting will serve as a forum for the governors to share what they learned and discuss the health care overhaul and skyrocketing health care costs.
Obama also participates in a town hall meeting on health care in the East Room. The event will be recorded and broadcast on ABC at 10 p.m. EDT.
