Does Healthcare Reform Face an Endless Summer?

Hosted by  • 

Barack Obama is staking his first term as President on achieving healthcare reform. Despite Republicans dragging their heels and Democrats being divided, he yesterday had an upbeat assessment of progress. At tonight's prime-time news conference, the White House says the President will address the questions Americans want answered. We address the political and economic realities that will still face the President and the Congress tomorrow morning. What are the hardest choices that will have to be made?  What are special interest lobbyists up to?  What if there's no bill by the Congressional recess in August?
