President Barack Obama's stumping for healthcare isn't changing many -- if any -- votes in the House, a top liberal lawmaker said Wednesday night.
Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), the co-chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said that while the president is projecting the right message, it's not likely to move many votes in Congress.
"I think the entire debate that's been going on -- For what, a year or so? -- has reached a point where we're glad to hear the president speak out, and say what's on his mind and what he wants us to do, and get the country revved up," Woolsey said during an appearance on MSNBC. "But I don't think it's going to change a lot of minds."
Obama has hit the road in recent weeks to try and build support for his healthcare bill as Democrats in Congress prepare to move forward on the long-sought reform legislation. This week alone, Obama has stumped in St. Louis, Mo. and at a university in the Philadelphia area.
The public push comes as polls show basically relatively divided over whether or not lawmakers should move forward on the proposals facing lawmakers.
Still, Woolsey, a leader of the liberals in the House Democratic Caucus, praised Obama's message.
"What he's saying, which is let's get it done and get it done now, is the right message," she said.
