Michelle Obama: Health Care Reform Won't Be Easy [Video]

“As the debate over health care reform escalates on Capitol Hill and in the White House, first lady Michelle Obama told ‘Good Morning America’ in an exclusive interview that "no system is going to be perfect" and ‘it's not going to be easy.’ The first lady talks about the health care challenges facing the U.S. The argument between Republicans and Democrats centers around the Obama administration's proposal for a government-sponsored health insurance plan, or ‘public option,’ that would compete with private insurance. Despite the contention over the merits of the plan and as how it would be funded, the first lady told ‘GMA’ she thinks success is possible now because ‘more and more people are ready for this kind of reform.’ ‘The country has moved to another point in time,’ she said. ‘It's not going to be easy, but you have more people who are ready to try to figure it out. And hopefully that will ultimately make the difference this time around.’ The first lady acknowledged that her involvement in promoting nutrition, wellness and prevention ‘is to me one of the true keys of changing the health paradigm in this country.”
