Michael Steele spoke about his perspective on President Obama's initiative to provide health care coverage for all Americans. In his remarks he stated that President Obama's proposals will hurt the economy and force people to drop their current coverage, and are a "dangerous experiment." He asserted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, other Democratic Congressional leaders, and the president form a "cabal" who want government-run health care. Mr. Steele responded to questions from the audience following his remarks. Question topics included the Republican alternative plan.
