Why not press Obama on the truth behind the TV ads of Rick Scott?CNN and Fox have run segments challenging Rick Scott's background and assertions. Why not have a real discussion on the key points of reforms being proposed, the costs and the benefits and the the tradeoffs. Why not bring insurance companies, AMA, AARP, drug companies, healthcare providers, Kathleen Sibelius and Rick Scott to debate the real facts and issues? This could be followed up by Fact Check by experts in CBO, the academia and think tanks. The public will be well served by the press and media outlets.

It says 9pm but is that eastern standard time or pacific time? And what channel?

gosh, the president loves bread and circus, yes? and i don't mean the market.
