Video: Obama's healthcare battle

US president aims to convince sceptics to work with him on healthcare changes.

    As the debate over healthcare in the US intensifies, Barack Obama, the president, is set to give a televised speech on Wednesday to sell his plan to a divided US public.

    Obama's speech to the US congress is expected to offer more details about the plan to overhaul the $2.5 trillion US healthcare system.

    But the president will face a tough job to convince Republicans, conservative groups, and some Democrats that his plan is the right way forward. Rob Reynolds reports.
