In the wake of President Obama’s marathon health care reform summit on Thursday, we spoke with Kaiser Health News reporter Mary Agnes Carey about what comes next in the overhaul push.

Carey said the lawmakers in the room appeared to have some general agreement on a few issues, but that a deep philosophical divide remains over the big picture.

After listening to both Republicans and Democrats speak after the summit, Carey said “there isn’t really any hope of getting Republican support for this bill,” but that Democrats appear committed to moving forward with their reform efforts.
