FROM THIS EPISODE

Los Angeles' legislative analyst says Mayor Villaraigosa's threat to shut down city services two days a week needs City Council approval, but it's all about his dispute with the Council in the first place.  We talk with the Mayor. We also talk with conservative Republican Chuck Devore, who wants Barbara Boxer's US Senate Seat. On our rebroadcast of To the Point, President Obama's Nuclear Posture Review is drawing fire from both hawks and doves. How does he propose to deal with proliferation, the threat of terrorism and the ambitions of Iran and North Korea?

Making News LA Budget Scuffle Continues 18 MIN, 3 SEC

Monday, the Department of Water and Power reneged on its promise to give the City of Los Angeles $73 million. Yesterday, Mayor Villaraigosa said that without that money, the city would have to shut down all but essential services for two days every week. City Councilman Paul Koretz called that a "game of chicken…absolutely a manhood contest," adding, "that's what it's been from the very beginning." For his part, Villaraigosa accused the Council of "demagoguery" and "the kind of scare tactics you saw around the healthcare debate" in Congress.
