President Obama is piling on the pressure when it comes to health care. He’s spending his day selling national health care reform and hosting a town hall meeting tonight, while lawmakers struggle to come up with money to pay for the massive overhaul. The President wants a bill on his desk by October. So what do you think?
Do you believe health care reform will be passed this year?

On Saturday, Pres. Obama issued this statement: "We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people." These are his strongest words on Iran so far.
Our question for you - is this statement enough for now...or should the U.S. do more?

CNN Dubai Bureau Chief Samson Desta is just back from Tehran. Desta worked as field producer in Iran during the election. He tells TJ Holmes and Betty Nguyen about the challenges he faced while there.
From writer/producer Elberta McKnight:
Protesters returned to the streets of Tehran Sunday with a message that’s now playing out around the world.
Peaceful demonstrations have taken place in Germany, France, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Washington as a result of Iran’s contested presidential election results.
Yet, one image is generating more reaction than any other. It is of a young Iranian woman we know only as Neda … purportedly killed in the streets of Tehran this weekend. The image has galvanized the anti-Iranian government movement. Our Betty Nguyen spoke with Intelligence Analyst Reva Bhalla about the new developments:
While researching "murderabilia" for our Friday segment, we came across some incredible/inexplicable stuff for sale. Seriously... who buys it? And, as one of our Tweeters asked, "Do they break it out at dinner parties for fun?" As you ponder that scenario, check out Kyra's interview with "Mr. Murderabilia" Andy Kahan.
There was a lot more we wanted to ask Andy about, but we ran out of time. (In fact, we were a little late getting out of the show - sorry, Team Sanchez!) Anyway, Andy was nice enough to share one of his blog posts; if you'd like to know more about his war on "murderabilia", have a look.
