President Obama dives back into domestic issues today, mainly the housing market, after his overseas trip earlier in the week.

Obama attends a housing refinance roundtable in the Roosevelt Room of the White House at 9:30 a.m. ET. At 11:45 a.m., Obama will deliver remarks on veterans health care from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

After receiving his presidential daily briefing in the Oval Office and lunch with Vice President Biden in the noon hour, Obama will meet with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner at 3:30 p.m. and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at 4:15 p.m.

Rounding out his day, the president will host a Passover Seder at 6:30 p.m.

Vice President Biden will hold a Cabinet meeting on economic recovery in the White House at 11:30 a.m.

This afternoon, first lady Michelle Obama will host an event in the White House Kitchen Garden on the South Lawn.

The White House press briefing with press secretary Robert Gibbs will be held at 3:00 p.m. from the White House.

The Fix's Chris Cillizza looks into Obama's roundtable meeting today and how the president fits into the recent recovery in the housing market.

A crucial forum took place at the White House yesterday. Those who will be having a lot of input into health care in the future were invited to share. As I watched this on c-span, I couldn't help think of the movie title: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. In that room were the leaders of organizations and companies that I have had just those experiences with and am currently dealing with. The good need to be listened to, the bad needs to have a 'heart transplant' and the ugly need to be indicted and go to jail. Listen carefully to the comments of each and their philosophies start to emerge. Thank you for the many that attended that have done so much good for humanity--the others "will you stop messing with my records after the doctor sends in the claims>". Linda Joy Adams

Earth to the Morons from that Hill!:

You are leaving Orbit!

Just what part of:

We have Millions of Houses TOO MANY;

Don't these Idiots understand?

I think O'Bomba is going to try to build demand by Legalizing 12 Million Invaders who are currently filling the demand for Illegal Workers!

Granted, it will cause an increase of Un-Employment of 12,000,000 new "Americans with Foreign Allegiance", but all the NEW Invaders to work for the Employers who WANT Illegal Un-Documented Labor, will fill up a lot of Houses! :-(

Personally, I think getting all the Imported Poverty OUT, our wages UP, and demolishing antiquidated Housing would be a much better approach!
