While the White House lobbies hard for health care revamp plans, Republicans are stepping up their attacks against the proposal.

The chairman of the Republican party accuses President Barack Obama and some Democratic lawmakers of being part of a Washington "cabal" that wants to implement government-run health care. In remarks prepared for delivery at the National Press Club, Michael Steele says they would create a "colossal, closed health care system where Washington decides."

The president has repeatedly said he does not favor a government-run health care system. Legislation taking shape in the House envisions private insurance companies selling coverage in competition with the government.

But, it has run up against objections from conservative Democrats.
Republican officials said they're supplementing Steele's speech with a round of TV ads. The spot warns of what it calls the president's "risky experiment with our health care."

President Obama plans a round-table discussion today with health-care providers in Washington.
