(Washington, D.C.) - U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen today released the following statement after meeting with President Obama and moderate Senate Democrats at the White House:
"Our meeting with President Obama was upbeat and thoughtful. We discussed, in detail, the cost of health care reform - both the cost of inaction for families and businesses, and the cost to our nation in terms of long-term spending.
"The discussion at the White House was positive and productive, and I remain hopeful that we can work together - Democrats and Republicans alike - to achieve this important goal."
