National security, jobs, and healthcare.gov - these are the things that President Obama will discuss on tomorrow's meeting with tech leaders.

U.S. President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with top tech leaders tomorrow, Tuesday, officials from the White House said.

Attending the meeting are Apple's Tim Cook, Google's Eric Schmidt, Twitter's Dick Costolo, Yahoo's Marissa Mayer, Netflix's Reed Hastings, Dropbox's Drew Houston, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, and Etsy's Chad Dickerson and Mark Pincus of Zynga. Other representatives from Facebook, Microsoft, and LinkedIn are also coming to the meeting.

According to the memo, President Obama will discuss the challenges and the progress of the country's health care website, HealthCare.gov. It's unclear why Obama wants to discuss health care concerns with the executives, but the memo says that the president wants to talk about how the government can "better deliver IT to maximize innovation, efficiency, and customer service."

Furthermore, Obama will also talk about the economic effects of unauthorized intelligence disclosures and other matters concering national security. Concerns about job creation will also be in the agenda. Obama wants to partner with the companies to further grow the U.S. economy, officials said.
