Pelosi Still Hopes Health Reform Can Be Passed

Friday, 26 Feb 2010 11:23 AM


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the healthcare plan that President Barack Obama is promoting should be the basis for Congress to move forward and at last pass a bill overhauling the system.

Pelosi said she thought the White House summit was useful and she said she would be happy to accommodate Republican ideas when the issue returns to the House floor. But she also said "we're going to pass healthcare reform" and that there will be no turning back.

Speaking at the Capitol, Pelosi said there is no question that there will have to be some government regulation of the insurance industry. She also said insurance "affordability for the middle class" would have to be in the bill. The California Democrat said there are "good prospects" to pass it.
