President Barack Obama on Wednesday urged lawmakers to approve his 10-year, $900 billion health care reform plan to help cut health care costs and expand coverage to millions of Americans. In his address to a joint session of Congress, Obama also called on legislators to stop bickering over the proposal, saying he "will not waste time with those who have made the calculation that it's better politics to kill this plan than to improve it."
