Here are the big stories on the agenda today:

  • Was it murder for hire?  New shocking developments in the brutal murders of a Florida couple.  A source now tells us there was a second safe in the Billings home with more than 100-grand inside.  And now some of the eight suspects are pointing fingers at another.
  • It's an all-out blitz from the White House, pushing the president's plan for health care reform.  President Obama is taking his sales pitch to prime time, tonight.  Does he have a new angle of attack for his critics?  Can he convince you?  Before you see the president in prime time, hear what outspoken Republican Ron Paul has to say about it!  Get ready for an earful.  He’s live with us this morning.
    And we want to know what you think about the health care debate.  You can leave a comment on the blog or call our show hotline at 1-877-MYAMFIX.
  • You've seen the video filmed by terrorists after he was taken hostage, and an entire town is hoping and praying for his freedom.  But who is Private First Class Bowe Bergdahl?  Loved ones say he’s a kid with an adventurous spirit who took up fishing, biking, even ballet.  Our Ed Lavandera is in his home town and talking to those who know him best.
