Bipartisan Meeting on Health Reform At The Blair House – Watch Live

Posted on by Karina

Today, House and Senate leaders of both parties will be meeting with the President at the Blair House to discuss moving forward with comprehensive health reform. Without reform, the cost of health care for the average family of four is projected to rise $1,800 every year for years to come–and insurance companies will make more health care decisions. America's middle class deserves better and we're closer than ever to making reform a reality. As we go forward, our reform efforts must pass the Triple-A test, reaching our three key goals: affordability for the middle class, accessibility for all Americans, and accountability for the insurance industry.

Watch the meeting live starting at 10am EST:
