FRONTLINE goes behind closed doors to examine the political battles and costly compromises that defined the Obama administration’s efforts toward healthcare reform.

Healthcare reform was the first big policy deal taken on by the Obama administration. Many say the president has bet the mid-term elections, possibly his presidency, on the outcome. In a new investigation, Frontline goes behind closed doors at the White House, in Congress and the boardrooms of the giant healthcare lobby to examine the political battles and costly compromises that defined Barack Obama’s endeavor. From early positive efforts, through the bitter battles with the Tea Party, the elation of apparent success at Christmas, to the crushing failure in the Massachusetts’ Senatorial election, FRONTLINE follows the story and reveals the first in-depth look at how the Obama administration operates. Frontline“Obama's Deal” airs Tuesday, April 13 at 9 p.m. on WXXI- TV (DT 21.1 / cable 1011 and 11).
