Obama to Hold Town-Hall Meetings to Face Growing Concerns from Democrats

This latest article in The Wall Street Journal blog discusses how President Barack Obama will hold three local town-hall meetings in order to convince the American public that his new health insurance plan will benefit them.

Obama will focus on emphasizing how legislation would help solve these three problems: the practice of denying insurance coverage to those with pre-existing illnesses, keep people from losing insurance coverage if they get sick, and protecting Americans that face high out-of-pocket costs. Republicans already favor two of three changes Obama proposes, but we will see how Democrats will view these changes shortly, as they have already voiced their concerns.
