Barack Obama Draws Flak Over His Healthcare Plan

The ambitious healthcare plan proposed by President Obama's government continues to draw some serious criticism from a group of liberal democrats which could prove to be a major hurdle in the way of healthcare reforms.

Kathleen Sibelius who's the secretary for health in the government received a letter from 60 democrats in the House of Representatives who have threatened to block the reforms if it doesn't include a public insurance option that aims to provide a state-run alternative to the private insurance plans for people falling in the low-income group.

If the President fails to get their support, it could be really a tough ride ahead for his healthcare plans.
