Today President Barack Obama spoke at the White House after meeting for more than an hour with Senate Democrats about health care reform.

Obama says there are still disagreements that have to be ironed out but “we’re on the precipice” of a breakthrough.

Obama says despite claims to the contrary, the reform bill will not add to the deficit.

The President says he told the gathering of senators that the Democratic Party cannot let its differences over portions of the bill destroy attempts to reform health care. Obama warned there will be consequences if the bill doesn’t pass.
