Obama appeared with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who faces a tough reelection battle this year. Obama stated that he and Reid are focused on the economy, jobs and housing.

The President once again pitched his proposed health care overhaul and challenged Republicans to come up with a plan to fix the health care system or step aside. 

“Show me what you’ve got,” he said, addressing the GOP. “But don’t let the American people go another year, another 10 years, another 20 years without health insurance reform in this country.”

In a few days President Obama will host a televised summit aimed at restarting the health-care debate. The event will be attended by Democratic and Republican leaders.
