President Obama presented his 2013 budget to Congress on Monday that includes $1.5 trillion in new taxes over the next ten years for the wealthiest taxpayers, closing some corporate tax breaks, and allowing Bush-era tax cuts to expire. However, it's not all cuts: the budget outlines increased spending for infrastructure projects, job-training, and innovation. Overall, it aims to lower the deficit below $1 trillion.

The biggest task for President Obama in his speech on Wednesday night was to take back the health care debate after a chaotic summer where unruly town halls and misrepresentations dominated the headlines. Yesterday, it seemed, some of that chaos continued, much of it centered on two words blurted by Representative Joe Wilson (R-South Carolina): “You lie!” Wilson shouted the words in response to the president’s claim that no illegal immigrants would receive health care under his plan.

For a look at how politics changed for Republicans this week we speak to Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has been working on its own health care bill. We also talk to Jackie Calmes, Washington correspondent for the New York Times, about the raucous disagreement between the political parties and what it means for health care reform.
