Here are the big stories on the agenda today:

  • The president is apparently winning over divided Democrats in the debate for health care reform.  Liberals insisting on a public option are now backing off, instead talking about backing their president. We’re live on Capitol Hill on a party that may be uniting and what it could mean for the future of health care.
  • While everyone's pre-occupied with health care reform, the White House is trying to remind us there's an economic recovery going on… and they'd like a little credit for it.  The administration claims it saved or created a million jobs.  As you’d imagine, not everyone agrees with that.
  • Remembering the attacks of 9/11, eight years later.  Victims' families will take their first steps on the long-awaited memorial plaza at the World Trade Center today.  New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joins us live from Ground Zero to talk about when the freedom tower will rise from lower Manhattan.
  • We haven't been attacked since 9/11, but why?  The last administration was slammed for some of the steps it took after 9/11 but was it successful?  Are we just lucky?  Our “Spies Among Us” series takes a hard look at the facts.
  • A money back guarantee, on a new car!  Starting Monday, General Motors will give new car buyers the chance to return their new wheels,  no questions asked.  It's a radical marketing move to pick up sales so they can pay back the billions they owe the government.  The deal lasts through November.  There are some major restrictions though...so check the fine print carefully.
