In Ohio, Obama Presses for Health-Care Reform Bill
By Michael A. Fletcher
SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio -- Continuing his campaign to win support for an overhaul of the nation's health care system, President Obama came to the is wealthy Cleveland suburb to again make his case that reform is an urgent national priority.
Obama used the appearance to tout his administration's accomplishment, saying stimulus spending and other programs had stemmed job losses and stopped the nation's economic slide.
And he praised the "citizens who defied the cynics and the skeptics who went to the polls to demand real and lasting change. This change was the cause of my campaign, and it is the cause of my presidency."
His comments echoed the presidential news conference Obama held the previous night, targeting middle-class Americans and seeking to calm their fears about the impact of the sweeping health reform legislation he is pushing for.
