After a fairly smooth opening, President Barack Obama faces new concerns among the American public about the budget deficit and government intervention in the economy as he works to enact ambitious health and energy legislation, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds.

These rising doubts threaten to overshadow the president's personal popularity and his agenda, in what may be a new phase of the Obama presidency.

The Governor of the Bank of England put himself on a collision course with the Government and the City again last night by laying out radical plans for clamping down on banks.

Mervyn King said that he wanted a restriction on the size of banks and that investment banks might have to be split from retail banks. In his annual speech at Mansion House before an audience of bankers and other City grandees, he said that banks should not be allowed to grow so large that they were deemed too big to fail.

The California Foreclosure Prevention Act, signed by Gov. Schwarzenegger in February, adds 90 days onto the time period between when homeowners default on a loan and when their home can be repossessed in foreclosure. Banks can avoid the 90-day holdup by having a comprehensive program in place to make mortgages more affordable by reducing the interest rate, extending the loan term, or reducing or deferring some of the principal. Such programs must be approved by regulators.
