President Barack Obama plans to go to Capitol Hill on Sunday to rally Democratic senators at a crucial time in the health care debate.

Obama plans to speak at the caucus meeting, scheduled for 2 p.m., as senators work through the weekend on overhaul legislation.

Confirmation of Obama's visit comes from Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Senators are debating the legislation Saturday and plan to return Sunday for a session set to begin at noon.
