The healthcare overhaul plan President Barack Obama released Monday is not intended to be the last word on legislation and he will work with both parties at a healthcare summit Thursday to find common ground, the White House said Wednesday.
"It is important to understand that this proposal isn't meant to be the final say on the legislation," Nancy-Ann DeParle, director of the White House Office of Health Reform said in an e-mail.
"At Thursday's bipartisan meeting, the president will continue to work with members of both parties to find common ground and look for the best ideas that will help American families and small business owners have greater control over their own healthcare," she wrote.
