The health care debate resumes on Capitol Hill, as CNN.com Live will be there for all the gavel-to-gavel coverage.

Today's programming highlights...

9:00 am ET - House in session - House Republicans pledged that an effort to repeal last year's health care reform package would top the legislative agenda for the new year.  That will be the case this morning, as lawmakers begin debate on a proposal to repeal the health care package.

11:30 am ET - Obama on the economy - The latest unemployment numbers will be released this morning, and the White House is hoping to hear some good news.  President Obama will discuss the numbers when he tours a manufacturing plant in Maryland.

3:00 pm ET - NAACP briefing on sisters released from prison - Two Mississippi sisters will be released from prison today on the condition that one donate a kidney to the other.  The NAACP will discuss the release during a briefing.

4:00 pm ET - Professional Bull Riders on Wall Street - You've heard of bulls and bears on Wall Street?  The Professional Bull Riders tour appear to be taking the terms seriously, as its executive chairman plans to ring the closing bell in honor of this week's PBR event in New York.

    don't kill another Shuttle crew!!!!!!!!
    .
    the ET cracks might very likely cause a, never seen before, huge ET foam debris that may destroy the Shuttle before it reaches the orbit!!!!!!
    .
    about 15 months ago I’ve proposed the DEFINITIVE solution for the Shuttle ET’s foam issue in this article:
    .
    “The $5000 idea that can save SEVEN astronauts”

    .
    maybe, NASA can use MY idea NOW, for the Discovery STS-133 mission and the latest flights, to avoid a further Columbia disaster
    .
    and, if they want additional suggestions to update my idea and make it better and safer, they can just send a mail to me
