Coming up on this CNN Sunday Morning...

A major snowstorm has moved out of the Washington, DC area and is now socking New England. Three deaths in Virginia are blamed on the storm. Our Reynolds Wolf reports from Fredericksburg, Virginia this morning.

We'll have a live report from London after severe wintry weather has forced Eurostar to cancel all train service this weekend.

Now that the health care reform bill has the crucial backing needed to avoid a Republican filibuster in the Senate, what's next? CNN Congressional Correspondent Brianna Keilar joins us this morning with that.

And Josh Levs brings us's "Lie of the Year," described as "the most signifant falsehood of 2009."

Betty, Reynolds and Josh are here on this CNN Sunday morning, along with Rob Marciano in for TJ Holmes, beginning 6am ET/ 3am PT.

    I was so offended by Dr. Gupta's show this morning reporting on 3 sisters who have had treatments totalling over $250,000 that I wrote him a note shown below. It will give you an idea about who I think is lying about death panels: You people in the media along with the democrats. You people are disgusting!

    Dr. Gupta,

    So, you think $250,000 spent on 3 old sisters is too much? Are you auditioning for Obama's upcoming death panels?

    You people on the left are disgusting! You put a price tag on human life, whether is grandma or a soldier in Afghanistan!

    Sarah Palin knew exactly what she was doing when she made her false "death panel" claim. Her goal is to stop the health reform from passing, and one of the ways to do that is to scare and confuse people into doing nothing. What she said definitely qualifies as lie of the year. Second biggest lie of the year should be her recent claim that was only speaking "figuratively" when using the term "death panels".

    Biggest lie of the year should have been:

    "Global warming is caused by human emmisions."

    It is difficult to choose the LIE OF THE YEAR as Obama and his cronies lie everytime they open their mouths and I can't decide the criteria for the Largest. It takes a while but people eventually can identify a movement to destroy our country.

    Mother nature has only just began we still have at least three more months to ride out and there's people out there without power to keep them warm and alive and the sad thing about it is it's not because of downed power lines but instead the same greedy politics that drowned our economy .

    These heavy snow storms and during the hot summer months the increase in huge fierce tornado's is directly related to the redistribution of fresh water on Earth.

    Global Warming is a fact. Big Oil is trying to confuse the public in their attempts to directly shift liability and blame stemming from its cause.

    Just like Big Tobacco did previously, Big Oil is trying to shift blame and liability aware from its toxic spewing power plants and vehicles. The dots are being connected and Big Oil's liability to what is happening now in Africa, other nations and island people needs to be addressed in the European Court system that has real teeth against American Corporations abuses.
