The Pentagon, 'Sequester' and National Security

Hosted by

How much defense does the United States really need?  How much can it reasonably afford?  These are just two of the questions raised by "sequester," which will require a 10 percent across the board cut in Pentagon spending by the end of this year. Will it really happen or will the White House and Congress kick the can down the road once again? Also, shoddy practices at big drug makers, and after 80 years, Newsweek magazine goes out of print.
