President makes final health care push

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama is making a final push to get a health care bill passed.

However, the effort threatens to shove aside the message the president promised would top his to-do list this year: creating jobs.

"I will do everything in my power to make the case for reform," said Obama.

He has less time to find enough votes among Democrats to pass health care legislation so he can free himself to spend more time on finding ways to create jobs and aid the economy.

Polling shows voters are more worried about the economy than overhauling the health care system.
