Obama meets with governors, talks health care

President Obama met with the nation's governors at the White House Monday.

At the meeting, the president defended his calls for increased spending on education, roads and research and offered a challenge to the governors on the subject of health care. Obama told the governors he would allow states to create their own health care systems as long as two requirements are met: the states' plans must cover as many people as Obama's plan, and states must do so at the same or lower cost.

Governors Rick Scott (R-FL) and Martin O'Malley (D-MD) were in attendance Monday and talk to American Morning's Kiran Chetry about health care, as well as the labor union protests across the country.
