Dem leaders say lawmakers 'very close' on health care

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says lawmakers are "very close" to resolving differences between the House and Senate health care bills and sending a final version to President Barack Obama.

Pelosi spoke at the White House after a meeting Wednesday with President Barack Obama and the chairmen of several House committees that have had a hand in shaping the House version of the bill.

Differences remain, including over abortion and whether to create a public option for health insurance. Pelosi, however, said both bills had the makings for great legislation.
