Obama on health care: 'We're in the red zone -- we've got to punch it through' 

Speaking at a town hall in Nashua, New Hampshire today, President Obama said he believes the Democrats' health care proposal is on "the five yard line" and just needs one final push to become law. "We're in the red zone," Obama said. "We've got to punch it through."

Obama said 90 percent of the bills passed by the House and the Senate are fine, with just 10 percent presenting problems that need to be fixed. "We were just about to clean those up," Obama said, "and then the Massachusetts election happened and everybody said, 'Oh, oh, oh, it's over. Well no, it's not over."
