White House: Obama weighing own health care bill

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says President Barack Obama is considering his own health care legislation to cut through the stalemate on Capitol Hill.

Gibbs says Americans will know exactly where the president stands after his speech to Congress on Wednesday night. He says Obama is ready to "draw some lines in the sand." It's still unclear what Obama will do on a proposal for government-sponsored coverage to compete with private insurers.

Gibbs says the president supports it. But Gibbs isn't saying Obama would veto a bill if it doesn't include the public option. Health care overhaul has been losing support, will polls showing only a slim majority thinks Congress should press ahead.
