Obama to Huddle With Cabinet Monday

President Barack Obama will host a meeting at the White House Monday afternoon with his Cabinet, a session that is certain to focus at least in part on health care reform.

The Cabinet secretaries meeting comes less than 48 hours after the Senate narrowly agreed, 60-39, to begin debate on a $848 billion health care bill. The House passed its version of a health care overhaul earlier this month, 220-215. Congress is now off for a weeklong break to observe the Thanksgiving holiday.

Obama will also confer Monday with two of his other top aides — the president is scheduled to have lunch with Vice President Joseph Biden and to meet separately with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton after the Cabinet meeting.
