Obama is completing work on a new strategy aimed at countering opposition to an overhaul, a senior administration official said. The president will address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday to revitalize his push for healthcare reform.
One option is for Obama to lay out a "more specific vision" of what he wants for healthcare reform, an official said. A CBS News poll this week said most Americans think Obama has not clearly explained his plans to overhaul the system.

No, he hasn't. I don't know that it is possible. What they want to do is too large a project and never done before. It would make more sense to have smaller bills to have reform in specific areas, written in clear understandable language with a time frame that allows debate and revision if necessary. The current bill is all about control. I say this because first off government doesn't do anything efficiently, they don't know how much things cost in real life, a proposal like this has not ever been done for a population the size of ours, and the bill encompasses too much. I don't think they would ever be able to clearly explain this bill. I mean, we have hear elected officials say that they won't bother because they don't understand, so what's the point of reading something that will effect the population for the remainder of time?
