HELENA, Mont. - Protesters plan a big rally Friday when President Barack Obama brings his town hall tour to Montana and puts a conservative suburb of Bozeman at the center of the issue for one day.

Obama is scheduled to focus on a provision that would prevent insurance companies from dropping or limiting insurance coverage for those who become seriously ill.

A national group running a campaign against congressional efforts expects as many as 500 people at its rally outside of the Belgrade airport where Obama will be talking.

On the other side of the spectrum, advocates for a government run health care system who have been protesting Senator Max Baucus' opposition to their ideas are hoping to get inside the arena to ask Obama questions.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Location, location, location.  You may have seen a post making its way around social media of a house listing in Seattle for nearly $450,000. That sounds about right for the area, right? Well this house is a bit of a fixer upper. The kind with lots of potential if you invest the time and money.  Currently, however, it is shown on the real estate site Redfin in less than perfect condition.
