President Obama attends his daily presidential briefing at 9:45 a.m. ET, followed by an economic briefing and then a meeting at 10:45 a.m. with his senior advisers.

At 12:30 p.m., the president delivers remarks on health care reform -- an address that follows a meeting behind closed doors with relevant stakeholders. Around 2:30 p.m., Obama greets the University of North Carolina men's basketball team.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs delivers the press briefing at 1:00 p.m.

OBAMA QUOTE: "46 million AMERICANS don't have any health insurance at all"

THIS IS A FLAT OUT LIE!!!

WHAT HE DOESNT TELL YOU IS THE FACT THAT THIS NUMBER INCLUDES 12 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

THIS INFORMATION IS ON THE CENSUS WEBSITE, UNLESS THE OBAMANITES HAVE REMOVED IT.

OBAMA IS PURPOSELY OVER INFLATING THIS NUMBER FOR HIS OWN POLITICAL PURPOSES.

ANY ETHICAL JOURNALIST WOULD REPORT ON THIS FACT BUT YOU WILL PROBABLY NEVER HEAR A WORD ABOUT IT.

46 MILLION OR 100 MILLION, IT DOESNT MEAN A THING WHEN OBAMA LIES ABOUT THEM.

IF HE WAS IN COLLEGE GETTING A GRADE IN STATISTICS, HE WOULD GET AN F FOR HIS ACCURACEY.

WHAT A JOKE...

Are these the "relevant stakeholders" that came up with this plan to trim approx. 2 trillion off the cost of healthcare costs?

Isn't it amazing how since the specter of HCR hit the hill and the WH that all these insurance groups, and medical agencies are all of a sudden getting "nice"?

I don't trust them, they're greedy, I don't fall for it.

So, closed-door meetings are fine with Obama, just not Cheney? Interesting.
