Obama Announces New Healthcare Plan

President Obama has unveiled a new health care reform proposal, aimed at achieving bipartisan support to revive stalled legislation, according to the BBC.
Obama's plan largely resembles the Senate's version of the health care bill, and contains no new major concessions to Republicans, reports the New York Times. The White House said the plan would cost $950 billion over a decade.
Republicans have attacked the proposal. The house minority leader, Rep. John A. Boehner of Ohio, called it "the same massive government takeover of health care."
This is the first time the president has put forth his own proposal on health care, according to the Times article.
