POTUS Events


President Obama at the White House, June 1, 2009.. (Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post)

President Obama starts his day with his routine briefings. At 2:30 p.m. ET, he sits down with Senate Democrats at the White House to discuss health-care reform.

That meeting comes just hours after Sens. Max Baucus (D-Mont) and Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) co-host an event, expected to be attended by top White House officials, to address a new report, 'The Economic Case for Health Care Reform,' at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

At 3:45 p.m., Obama signs the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission Act -- a bill that creates a member commission to plan and coordinate activities that will honor former president Ronald Reagan on the anniversary of his 100th birthday.

At 4:30 p.m., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer meet with Obama at the White House. The president leaves for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia shortly after 7:00 p.m.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs delivers the daily press briefing at 12:45 p.m.

Howard Dean is correct.

"a"(Toothy, Robust)"public health insurance option is more important than bipartisanship, and Democrats should pass health-care legislation that includes the option with 51 votes if necessary."

"Democrats should have "no intention" of working with Republicans if it's not the strongest possible legislation that could be passed with a simple majority." (Howard Dean)

This is what WE THE PEOPLE gave the Democrats all that power to do for ALL of us.

You see, Dr. Dean knows that in medicine and healthcare there is only one acceptable standard. And that standard is the HIGHEST level of EXCELLENCE you can provide for everyone. Nothing less has ever been acceptable in caring for a precious human life.

And the White House is right too. "Good health care reform is essentially good economic policy." (Christina Romer)

Okay, really, we need to stop the hommages to Ronald Reagan. Enough is enough.
