Senate Democrats and Obama Do Q&A

Hosted by

For more than an hour today, live on cable TV, President Obama took tough questions from Democratic Senators with electoral problems at home. Asked about the deficit, Obama responded to Indiana's Evan Bayh that we enjoyed our last balanced budget "under a Democratic president who made some hard decisions." He blamed the deficit on two wars, tax cuts and a prescription drug program that were not paid for by the Bush Administration. Michael Scherer is White House correspondent for Time magazine.
