Obama to deliver health care address to Congress

September 2, 2009 12:38:54 PM PDT
President Barack Obama has set a major address on health care for Sept. 9 before Congress. The speech will come a day after lawmakers return from an August recess in which critics of Obama's health proposals have dominated many public forums. Some Democrats feel Obama has been too vague and standoffish in discussing his health care goals so he decided to throw more details into the debate.

Senior adviser David Axelrod had said Tuesday that Obama was considering being "more prescriptive" about what he feels Congress must include in a health bill. The White House has given Senate negotiators until Sept. 15 to produce a bipartisan bill.
