Obama Delays Trip to Hill, Will Pay Visit Friday to Walter Reed
President Obama is pushing back a trip to Capitol Hill to discuss the proposed health-care overhaul with lawmakers.
Obama had planned to head to the Capitol on Friday. Now the White House schedule shows Obama planning to visit the Capitol on Saturday.
On Friday afternoon, Obama plans to visit Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
White House officials say the trip to Walter Reed had been scheduled before the fatal shootings Thursday at Fort Hood, Tex. They insist that the visit to Walter Reed, Obama's first as president, is separate from the incident at Fort Hood.
