Obama talks health care with biz execs

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will be talking health
care again today, a day after industry representatives pledged to
slash soaring costs by $2 trillion over the next decade.
The president is meeting with business executives to talk to
them about the high price of health care.
Obama is hailing the agreement of top health care providers to
dramatically cut costs, but many lawmakers are skeptical.
Obama calls the pledge a watershed event in a long and elusive
quest for health care reform.
Oregon Senator Ron Wyden says those promises should be given the
force of law. He says he's "not about to take the fox's word the
hen house is safe."
Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley says he'd feel better if there
were an actual plan on the table that budget analysts could score.
