President Obama’s renewed push for health care legislation was front page news across the country today. After leaving the details the legislation largely in the hands of Congress last year, the White House posted the President’s $950 billion health care proposal online yesterday.

The White House proposals expanded on legislation that had passed the House and Senate. Reaction was split with Republicans criticizing the proposal and Democrats responding positively. The White House acted yesterday in advance of Thursday's so-called bipartisan meeting on health care.

The Administration has been on the offensive recently as it attempted to regain momentum to enact legislation on one of the President’s cornerstone domestic policy issues.

Check out the stories in The Inquirer, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and The Chicago Tribune.
