Highlights of President Obama’s Health Care Town Hall in Raleigh, N.C.

By Kelley Luckstein

A businesswoman with 20 employees asks Obama: What is your government model for health care? Obama cites Medicare and the Veterans Administration, saying both government-run health programs get good ratings. Says Medicare costs have risen "more slowly" than medical costs in the private sector, but he adds that system could also use some improvements. Again salutes such entities as the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic, calling them models for the government.
