Obama: 'Take Our Time' On Finalizing Health Care

Thursday, 04 Feb 2010 07:16 PM


President Barack Obama says "we should take our time" getting to a final health care bill.

He said Thursday he wants to go through the legislation in detail with Republicans to examine their ideas and Democratic ideas to see whether there are better ways to improve the nation's health care system than have already been proposed.

Obama said that letting some time pass before calling for a vote also will allow "everybody to get the real facts."

The president spoke to donors and supporters of his political organization, Organizing for America, one of a handful of fundraisers he was headlining Thursday for Democrats.

Obama said it is most urgent to focus now on a jobs package, but that health care must be addressed afterward.
