Obama healthcare plan reaches deadline
The biggest domestic reform plan of Barack Obama’s presidency is facing its most important test. Monday is the deadline to sign up for the Affordable Care Act, which will help the country's poorest citizens gain access to health insurance. About 10 million people have signed up for private or government-run health insurance so far. But for the programme to be fiscally sound, young, healthy people will also need to enrol. The numbers show that 33 percent of those registering are within the key demographic, but experts say the number needs to be closer to 40 percent. Al Jazeera's Patty Culhane reports.

US President Obama speech to Congress on healthcare reform
(10 Sep 2009) 1. Close up as US President Barack Obama is announced to chamber 2. Various shots of Obama shaking hands with Congressmen and Senators 3. Wide of Obama at podium 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "I am not the first President to take up this cause, but I am determined to be the last." 5. Cutaway of applause in chamber 6. Wide of chamber 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "It has now been nearly a century since Theodore Roosevelt first called for health care reform. And ever since, nearly every President and Congress, whether Democrat or Republican, has attempted to meet this challenge in some way. A bill for comprehensive health reform was first introduced by John Dingell Senior in 1943. Sixty-five years later, his son continues to introduce that same bill at the beginning of each session." 7. Close up of Senator John Dingell 8. Wide of people applauding Dingell 9. Wide of Obama at podium 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "We are the only Democracy, the only advanced Democracy on earth, the only wealthy nation that allows such hardship for millions of its people. There are now more than 30 (m) million American citizens who cannot get coverage. In just a two year period one in every three Americans goes without healthcare coverage at some point and every day 14,000 Americans loose their coverage, in other words it can happen to anyone." 11. Cutaway of applause 12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "But what we have also seen in these last months is the same partisan spectacle that only hardens the disdain many Americans have towards their own government. Instead of honest debate, we have seen scare tactics. Some have dug into unyielding ideological camps that offer no hope of compromise. Too many have used this as an opportunity to score short-term political points, even if it robs the country of our opportunity to solve a long-term challenge. And out of this blizzard of charges and counter-charges, confusion has reigned. Well the time for bickering is over. The time for games has passed. Now is the season for action." 13. Cutaway of chamber 14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "And while there remains some significant details to be ironed out, I believe a broad consensus exists for the aspects of the plan I just outlined, consumer protections for those with insurance, an exchange that allows individuals and small businesses to purchase affordable coverage and a requirement that people who can afford insurance, get insurance and I have no doubt these reforms will greatly benefit Americans from all walks of life and as well as the economy as a whole." 15. Wide of Obama being applauded 16. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, President of the United States: "I understand how difficult this healthcare debate has been, I know many in this country are deeply skeptical that government is looking out for them. I understand the politically safe move would be to kick the can further down the road, to defer reform one more year, or one more election, or one more term, but that is not what this moment calls for, that is not what we came here to do. We did not come to fear the future, we came here to shape it, I still believe we can act, even when its hard." 17. Wide of Obama at end of speech 18. Various of Obama shaking hands after speech STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama urged Congress to enact sweeping health care legislation on Wednesday night, declaring the "time for bickering is over" and the moment had arrived to help millions who have insurance and many more without it.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Mitch McConnell, Senate Republican leader: ++soundbite part overlaid by mid shot of McConnell speaking++ "They (the American public) have followed this debate like no other, and they have rendered a judgement about what we have attempted to do so far. The solution to that is to put that on the shelf, and to start over with a blank piece of paper and go step by step to see what we can agree on to improve the American healthcare system which is already, as all of us agree, the finest in the world." 4. Cutaway of meeting 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Barack Obama, US President: "We cannot have another year-long debate about this, so the question that I''m going to ask myself, and I ask of all of you is: is there enough serious effort that in a month''s time or a few weeks'' time or six weeks'' time, we could actually resolve something? And if we can''t, then I think we''ve got to go ahead and make some decisions and then that''s what elections are for. We have honest disagreements about the vision for the country and we''ll go ahead and test those out over the next several months till November, all right?" 6. Wide end of meeting 7.

AP TELEVISION Washington, DC - 25 February 2010 9. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid walking to speak with reporters after the meeting 10. SOUNDBITE: (English) Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker, Democrat: "I''m hopeful that something may come of it, I''m not overly optimistic that we would get Republican votes for the bill, but that doesn''t mean we couldn''t incorporate some of their good ideas into legislation, should they put some on the table." 11. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House Republican Leader John Boehner walking to speak with reporters after the meeting 12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Mitch McConnell, Senate Republican leader: "Frankly I was discouraged by the outcome. I think it''s pretty clear that the majority, including the president, want to continue with basically the Senate bill which has even been made more expensive, based on the president''s recommendations that were put on the Internet a couple of days ago. But we''re happy to continue to discuss the areas of agreement, it''s just that I do not believe there will be any republican support for this 27-hundred-page bill that the American people are so overwhelmingly opposed to." 13. McConnell and Boehner leaving STORYLINE: US President Barack Obama and Republicans clashed on Thursday over his plan to overhaul US health care in an extraordinary daylong televised debate that offered little hope for a compromise on an issue that could shape Obama''s legacy. The lack of consensus could prompt Democrats to attempt politically risky parliamentary manoeuvres to try to get a bill through Congress without any Republican support. That could make health care an even more volatile issue going into the November congressional elections. Despite calls for bipartisanship, neither side gave ground. From the beginning, Obama implored participants not to merely trade talking points. But that is largely what they - and he - did over seven hours in Blair House, the presidential guest house across from the White House. Obama acted as both moderator for the meeting and chief advocate for the plan.
