US Health Care Summit Live Stream: US President Barack Obama is having a health care summit in Washington today. This meeting is open to the public to watch and is available live via C-Span and YouTube’s Citizen Tube. Obama summons both the Republicans and the Democrats to this White House summit to engage in direct dialogue over how to provide better health care for the Americans.

“I don’t want to see this meeting turn into political theater, with each side simply reciting talking points and trying to score political points,” said Obama Saturday in his radio and Internet address. “What’s being tested here is not just our ability to solve this one problem, but our ability to solve any problem.”

Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader John Boehner, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will answer select top-voted questions submitted on Citizen Tube (via Google moderator) at the end of the summit. Video responses from the three legislators will be uploaded on the YouTube homepage on Friday.

The summit, held at the official presidential guest house across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, will be broadcast live from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. (EST). You can watch Obama’s health care summit live stream here.
