Thursday, 21 Jan 2010 09:25 AM


“I would advise that we try to move quickly to coalesce around those elements of the [healthcare] package that people agree on,” President Barack Obama said in an interview on ABC News.

But it was not clear that even a stripped-down healthcare bill could get through Congress, according to a NYTimes.com report.

  Asked whether the healthcare is dead, McConnell said: “I sure hope so."
