ABC's White House special struggled for viewers
 President Obama's town hall meeting on health care delivered a sickly rating 
Wednesday evening. 

The one-hour ABC News special "Primetime: Questions for the President: 
Prescription for America" (4.7 million viewers, 1.1 preliminary adults 18-49 
rating) had the fewest viewers in the 10 p.m. hour. The special tied some 8 
p.m. comedy repeats as the lowest-rated program on a major broadcast network. 

The special was shot at the White House and featured the president answering 
questions about his health care plan. The president's primary message was that 
those who like their current insurance will be able to keep it and that taking 
no action will result in higher health care costs.

The special drew fire from Republican leadership after refusing to allow an 
official opposition response, or even a paid ad. ABC also interviewed Obama on 
"Good Morning America" to help promote the special.

"Answering questions" is a VERY generous description.


...until the gov't bankrupts all the companies and takes control of 
   ALL medical insurance.  That's what happens when one side makes 
   the rules and has the ability to print money while the other side
   faces penalties & fines for disobeying the rules.

Did everyone hear/read the latest proposal from Democrat Max 
Bauccus (sp?)?  To pay for some of the health care spending, 
employee health benefits will be taxed as income BUT UNION 
EMPLOYEES' BENEFITS WILL BE EXEMPT FROM THE TAXES!
