Toyota: On the Capitol Hill Hot Seat

Hosted by

Before hearing from the CEO of Toyota today, members of Congress grilled the Secretary of Transportation about why regulators were so slow to act on sudden acceleration. We hear about auto safety, Toyota's future and the economy of Japan. Also, health insurers call rate hikes inevitable, and a struggling Rhode Island high school fires all of its teachers — with high praise from Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
