Guam - While President Barack Obama has delayed his upcoming trip to Asia, Guam Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo says the commander in chief decided to delay his departure for the final effort to pass health care reform legislation. Bordallo says while the White House has not released any new details about the president's trip to Asia, her office has been assured that the president still intends to visit the island.

She says, "Health care reform is one of President Obama's top legislative priorities and I know that once this very difficult work is done, he will certainly appreciate the warm welcome that he will receive on Guam."  The president was supposed to arrive on island this Thursday, but that date has been extended to next Tuesday.
