From the Huffington Post:
While many Americans are wrapping gifts, President Barack Obama is pledging to personally wrap up health-care reform.
The Senate expects to pass a health care bill on Christmas Eve, and Obama told PBS’s Jim Lehrer that he would ‘absolutely’ take a hands-on role in merging it with the House version.
“We hope to have a whole bunch of folks over here in the West Wing, and I’ll be rolling up my sleeves and spending some time before the full Congress even gets into session,” he said.
This comes after the president has taken some criticism for being too passive and allowing too many aspects of health care reform to be compromised.
