Obama: 'We intend to get something done this year'

WASHINGTON (AP) - September 8, 2009 But he insisted that "we do intend to get something done this year."

The president commented in an interview scheduled for broadcast Wednesday on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Obama's plan for overhauling the nation's health care system is stalled in Congress, largely due to disagreement over a government-run insurance option that would compete with private insurers.

Obama tells ABC that after the speech, the country will know exactly what he thinks is the solution to controlling spiraling health care costs.
