Will Healthcare Reform Get to the Senate Floor?

Hosted by

Democrats finally have a healthcare reform bill they want to get to the Senate floor before next week's Thanksgiving vacation. Republicans will use all available parliamentary maneuvers to prevent that from happening. We hear how the bill compares to the House version and assess its chances.  Also, Afghan President Hamid Karzai is inaugurated for a second term, and a federal judge holds the Army Corps of Engineers responsible for massive damage to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Now the Obama Adminstration will have to decide to appeal or face billions in lawsuits.
