Obama's Health Care Pitch To Democrats: Trust Me

WASHINGTON -- Here's what President Barack Obama is telling House Democrats in private pitches about health care legislation: He'll persuade Congress to pass it even if he has to ask deeply distrustful lawmakers to trust him on a promise the White House doesn't have the power to keep.

In fact, Obama can even joke that the political battle has contributed to the recent rise in his cholesterol.

Democratic Rep. Ron Kind of Wisconsin was one of several Democrats who met with Obama at the White House last week.

Kind says Obama made the case that a lot of hard work has been spent on health care over the past year and that now is the time for action.
