Obama: Health-care bill just ‘a first step’

President Barack Obama, in an interview that will air Tuesday morning on the Today show, calls the healthcare reform that he has signed into law “a first step.”

“I think it is a critical first step in making a health care system that works for all Americans,” the president says in an interview with NBC News’ Matt Lauer which will be shown in the morning. “It is not going to be the only thing. We are still going to have adjustments that have to be made to further reduce costs.”
