Burris continues to be thorn

From WMAQ's Mary Ann Ahern (of NBC's Chicago affiliate)
Sen. Roland Burris, who is needed by the Obama administration for those 60 votes to pass the healthcare bill, said, "I will only vote for a bill with a strong public option."

Burris delivered his remarks at Stroger Hospital in Chicago.

"In order to achieve real reform" there must be lowered cost, Burris added.
