Obama admits health reform hit ‘buzz saw’
Modern Healthcare - The Associated Press

President Barack Obama says his healthcare overhaul has “run into a bit of a buzz saw” and acknowledges the process is looking ugly. Nonetheless he says he’ll keep working to finish sweeping legislation. In comments prepared for a town hall meeting in Ohio, Obama said that the GOP victory in Tuesday’s Senate election in Massachusetts has thrown Washington into something of a frenzy. Republican Scott Brown’s victory denied Democrats the 60-vote filibuster-proof majority needed to advance the healthcare bill.
