A year later, Obama says it’s time for health care vote

The World

Yesterday, President Obama made one last-ditch attempt to push for health care overhaul.

The push comes just a week after the president’s heath care summit at the White House, and after he said he would be open to four Republican ideas gleaned from that discussion.
