On September 9, 2009, President Barack Obama addressed a joint session of Congress to discuss an issue of both importance and controversy that has plagued the United States for decades – how to reform healthcare. Initiated as a main platform in his bid for the Presidency, Obama is pushing for healthcare reform to occur this year. He has set deadlines for Congress, pushing them to negotiate in a bi-partisan fashion and form a consensus on reform. However, the debate on both sides has grown to a fever pitch. As a result, the President chose to address a special joint session of Congress in order to give a broad overview of the problems that exist with the current healthcare system. He also was pressed to deliver key itemized solutions that would make up his desired plan for reform.
