New focus on health care

After struggling in the early days of his campaign with an economic crisis he did not anticipate during the early part of his campaign, President Barack Obama will focus on health care this week.

A report by the Center for American Progress Action estimates that 4 million Americans have lost their health insurance since the start of the recession. A further estimated 14,000 lose their insurance every day.

Obama's health care plan seeks to control prescription drug prices, switch to electronic medical record-keeping and improve medical treatment and efficiency. The administration is currently looking for a health secretary after Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination due to tax problems.

Dear Mr. Obama;

I would like to invite your family to watch my iTV show, where I discuss the selection of a dog for the first family.

Best regards
