Experts React to the President's Speech on Health Reform

Obama's Health Plan: The Debate Goes On

Rising Health Care Costs

The speech acknowledged the enormous problem of rising health care costs. "We will eventually be spending more on Medicare and Medicaid than every other government program combined,'' Obama said. "Put simply, our health care problem is our deficit problem. Nothing else even comes close."

But the address didn't lay out many details on how it would restrain those costs, which have risen much faster than inflation.

There wasn't much, if anything, surprising in Obama's speech, experts say. Even the malpractice proposal he's hinted at before, Brown says.

"What was new was his very passionate commitment to getting it done,'' Brown says. "What he cannot do is back off and let others lead this debate. The test will come in the days ahead.''

This is still the beginning of the debate on health reform, adds D'Angelo.
