Obama delays trip to Indonesia, Australia for healthcare

President Barack Obama on Thursday scrapped his trip to Indonesia and Australia scheduled for next week to focus on the final push for a U.S. healthcare overhaul, the White House said.

"The president regrets the delay," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters, saying the Indonesia visit would be reset for June. He said Obama, who had been due to leave on Sunday for the South Pacific, had called Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and planned to phone Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.
