Daschle in Denver to outline Obama health care reform plan
Former Sen. Tom Daschle, expected to be tapped to head Health and Human Services, will make the incoming administration’s first major health policy speech in Denver this morning as the keynote speaker at the Colorado Health Summit sponsored by Sen. Ken Salazar.
In prepared remarks, previewed by the Wall Street Journal, Daschle will confirm that charge: “The president-elect made health-care reform one of his top priorities of his campaign, and I am here to tell you that his commitment to changing the health-care system remains strong and focused.”
C-SPAN has the video replay of Daschle’s remarks.
The Colorado Independent has reprinted the text of Daschle’s speech at the Colorado Health Summit.
