Need To Know News: Obama and YouTube, Tea Party and health care, Kucinich and an olive

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" will put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For January 27, 2011, Obama/YouTube, Tea Party/health care, Kucinich/olive.

• Following Tuesday's State of the Union, it's time for the YouTube Q&A for President Barack Obama. From CNN: "The interview on YouTube at 2:30 p.m. ET is part of a series of events in which top administration officials are talking directly to Americans about administration policies set out in Tuesday's address to a joint session of Congress."

• The Tea Party's first order of business – repealing health care. CNN's Gabriella Schwarz reports: "Republican South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint introduced legislation Wednesday to fully repeal the health care reform legislation passed last year and signed into law by President Obama. DeMint's action comes on the same day Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, began procedural steps to force a vote on a separate repeal bill in the coming weeks."

• The weather in the northeast is a mess, again. From CNN: "The major snowstorm that pelted much of the Northeast will taper off Thursday, but schools, government offices and some airport runways could remain closed. Winter storm warnings that stretched from the southern Appalachian mountains to coastal Massachusetts were due to expire Thursday morning."

• A base in Utah is on lockdown. From CNN: " A Utah military facility that tests chemical and biological weapons was locked down "to resolve a serious concern," and authorities were working to reopen the base, officials said Thursday."

• Rep. Dennis Kucinich is suing Congress over an olive. CNN's Ed Hornick reports: "In 2008, the Ohio Democrat purchased a sandwich wrap filled with those olives at the cafeteria inside the Longworth Office Building. After biting into the wrap, he cracked a tooth, according to the legal complaint. Now he has come forward with a $150,000 lawsuit against the cafeteria – run by Restaurant Associates and other groups – for providing "dangerous" sandwiches."

    What was that all about? Why do you hate Joel? Attacking him for being rich, at least he is trying to make the world a better place. Piers, your rich, what have you done for the world lately? Why hate on a guy that is trying to the do the right thing on a daily basis, with love.
