Pep talk to Democratic caucus on Health Care


LINK: Pep talk to Democratic caucus on Health Care, March 20, 2010, Washington DC. Note: The talk begins about one-third of the way into the clip.

Context:
After more than a year of negotiating and partisan attacks, Obama and the Democratic leaders in Congress were able to bring a healthcare bill to the floors of the House and Senate, a bill that would have substantially altered and reformed the existing system. The rancorous debates had forced many lawmakers to make very difficult and often very unpopular votes in Congress. Obama gave this speech to rally and reassure them as they prepared for their final votes.
