Obama Set To Announce Health Care Fix

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – President Barack Obama will lay out his plan Thursday to deal with the growing concern of the several million Americans who have been informed their health care plan that don’t meet minimum standards will be canceled.

The announcement is planned for an 11:30 a.m. press conference where Obama will also reportedly take questions from reporters in attendance.

Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill have proposed plans to allow Americans to keep their insurance, regardless of whether or not it meets minimum standards. Republicans in the House were set to vote on a measure from Representative Fred Upton on the matter this week.

President Obama’s sagging poll numbers have come after the cancellation notices were distributed and misleading reports from some of the national media helped to stoke the controversy.

Obama will go to Cleveland, Ohio later Thursday where he will try to pivot from the health care problems to the economy. After the Cleveland trip, Obama will travel to Philadelphia for a Senate fundraiser, according to the Washington Post.
