Is Superstorm Sandy a Wake-Up Call? During this year's presidential campaign, there's been almost a dead silence on climate change. New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo says it's time to start paying attention. He warns that an old infrastructure is now at risk from new weather patterns and he wants to prepare for the next one. Scientists say it's about time. Should beach houses become things of the past? Should low-lying city pavement be turned into sponges to accommodate flooding?
Janesville and the American Dream Janesville, Wisconsin is the hometown of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan. But he couldn’t prevent the closing of the General Motors factory after 100 years. On this Memorial Day rebroadcast of To the Point, we hear what’s happened to what once was a model of American middle-class unity.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
