President Obama Addresses Entitlements

Hosted by

Last week the Republicans, and yesterday the President, laid out their long-term plans for reducing the deficit, defining differences that will be crucial in next year's election campaigns. But major decisions are on tap for today and tomorrow before Congress takes off for a two-week recess. We hear about Medicare, taxes, women's rights and deficit reduction.
