This week, we continued to focus on a major priority of the Obama Administration and Congress: health care reform. On Wednesday, I joined President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Chairmen Rangel, Waxman, and Miller at the White House in ongoing talks to develop legislation that lowers health care costs, provides patient choice of providers and plan, and ensures access to quality, affordable care for all Americans. We have made progress since these discussions began, aided further with a pledge this week by major health care stakeholders to slow the national growth rate of health care expenditures. Congress will continue to work with President Obama to develop health reform legislation with the hope of considering a bill in the House by August.
