Barack Obama Says US Healthcare Bills Need More Work

U.S. President Barack Obama is defending his relentless campaign for a health care bill before Congress's August recess, saying "the default in Washington is inaction and inertia." The Republican Party chairman assailed it as an "excessive push."

According to The Associated Press, the fault lines in the debate emerging as Topic A in the capital remained intact Tuesday as Obama defended the deadline, saying the American people want the overhaul done quickly, and GOP Chairman Michael Steele demanded: "Take your time!"

Asked in an NBC "Today" interview whether he would sign any of the legislation being considered in Congress, Obama replied: "Right now, they're not where they need to be."

Obama has been pressing Congress to approve healthcare legislation, a centerpiece of his domestic agenda, before the August recess.

"I am deeply invested in getting this thing done," Obama said, Reuters informs.
