Obama In Raleigh For Health Care Event

President Barack Obama says he doesn't want future generations to look back on the health care debate and say lawmakers focused on "petty politics" when they had a chance to help millions.

Nor does he want them to say Washington preserved the status quo for special interests or wasted the chance to get health care right.

As he urged Congress to send him a bill, Obama said he wants future generations to say lawmakers seized the moment and met the challenge to extend health insurance to millions of uninsured people and reduce costs for all.

Obama addressed a town hall meeting in Raleigh, N.C., about his plan to overhaul the U.S. health care system.
