The article presents a bipartisan discussion on insurance coverage between U.S. President Barack Obama and members of the U.S. Congress and Senate. The session was opened by U.S. Senator John A. Barrasso who cited that most Americans are fearful of the consequences of the health care reform bill with only one in three people supporting it. President Obama asserts that the coverage given by Medicaid to poor people is flawed with problems in doctor reimbursements and solvency at the Federal and state level.
