Well, President Obama took his health care plan on the road again today in Portsmouth , New Hampshire, explaining his ideas. Here is a little of what he had to say.


Don't have health insurance, you will finally have quality, affordable2 options once we pass reform. If you do have health insurance, we will make sure that no insurance company or government bureaucrat3 gets between you and the care that you need and we will do this without adding to our deficit4 over the next decade, largely by cutting out the waste and insurance company giveaways in Medicare that aren't making any of our seniors healthier.

In other news, police in Michigan looking for a man accused of holding a gun to a woman’s head during a bank robbery. Surveillance pictures first show the man pointing a gun at the teller5 in the bank in Harrison Township. Police say he demanded money and tried to take a customer hostage. The woman was able to get away. The suspect did not take money.
