Local Congress members are among those briefed this afternoon on the case for action against Syria. We hear from two Democrats: Brad Sherman, who went in favoring the President's limited strikes and Janice Hahn, who has defied her party's leadership so far and said, "No."Also, Syrian-Americans who live in LA run the gamut from supporters of US military action to supporters of the Assad regime. We hear all sides.
On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, it's not just Syria. One veteran congressman calls this "an amazing time." Obamacare, immigration reform, a possible government shutdown and defaulting on the national debt are all on the table as Congress returns from the August recess. Can the current members handle it all?
