A Medical Miracle with Conflicting Consequences

Hosted by

Eighty million baby boomers are reaching their late 50's. Will an aging population burden the young or use the wisdom that comes from experience to create a better society? On this archived edition of To the Point, originally broadcast in April of this year, we look at the pros and cons of an aging America. Also, an update on healthcare reform. On Reporter's Notebook, for decades, union membership has been declining as a percentage of America's work force. What's the state of the AFL-CIO? We get a progress report.
