White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told ABC's George Stephanopolous that President Barack Obama will make the case for some form of a public health insurance option when he makes a speech to Congress Wednesday. But Gibbs indicated that Obama wouldn't issue a veto threat for a bill that doesn't include a public option.

"I doubt that we'll get into heavy veto threats on Wednesday. We're going to talk about what we can do, because we're so close to getting it done. He'll talk about the public option. He'll talk about why it's a valuable component in providing choice in competition," said Gibbs.
