POTUS' Day Ahead: Outlining deficit reduction

It's a busy beginning of the week for the president. First he will unveil his deficit reduction plan in a high-profile Rose Garden speech at 10:30 a.m. The White House has already said the president will push for increased taxes on high-income earners, a non-starter for most Republicans. Other cuts will come from changes to medicare, reductions in interest expenditures and the wind-down of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Later Monday, the president will head to New York City, where he will spend the next day and a half attending events at the United Nations General Assembly. But it won't all be official diplomatic business, the president also has a closed-door fundraiser scheduled for Monday evening in the city.

    another busy day as the pres. He is trying so hard to fix things for the american people so we can get back on our feet and the lack of cooperation on the repub side is nonsense to me. He is trying to dig us out of a hole that is 20 years deep (alot of it, not all, created by repub policy) and he has to babsit the adult day care center which is congress on top of it. Thats not fair to the pres, to the people and its not productive.
