WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says the Senate Finance Committee’s approval of health care reform is a “critical milestone” but it’s “too early to pat ourselves on the back.”

He cautions the bill is not perfect and health reform is not a done deal.

Obama says the next several weeks will be spent working out some significant details.

Next ahead is the daunting task of piecing together a final package from five different committee versions and crafting one ambitious enough to please liberal backers without frightening away key moderates.

The measure did pick up one Republican vote in the Finance Committee, moderate Maine Senator Olympia Snowe.
