WASHINGTON D.C. -- Utah Sen. Bob Bennett met with President Barack Obama Wednesday to discuss health care reform.

Bennett's office sent a release to KSL Newsradio saying Bennett believes Congress and the administration needs to focus on controlling costs and keeping the government out of health care.


"We had a good discussion," Bennett said. "The president was very gracious when I made it clear to him that I could not support any bills currently before the Senate."

The White House sent the following statement on the meeting:

"The President had constructive meetings today with Sen. Rockefeller and with Sens. Bennett and Wyden in the Oval Office. These meetings underscore the President's continued commitment to working with senators on both sides of the aisle to pass health insurance reform this year."
