President Obama traveled up to Capitol Hill this Saturday to address the House Democratic Caucus on health care. Below is a read out of Mr Obama's meeting from White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton:

"The President made the case that Congress has a historic opportunity today to provide stability and security for those who have insurance, affordable coverage for those who don't and bring down the cost of health care for families, small businesses and the government. He said that we have made more progress on comprehensive reform than any administration and any Congress in the past 70 years - and we should take this historic opportunity to pass health care reform so that he can sign a bill by the end of this year.

Also, there was some spontaneous chanting of 'fired up, ready to go' from members as he walked out."
