Budget Solutions Look Bad and Worse

Hosted by

The State Constitution says a new budget is due today, but that's a deadline the Legislature has failed to meet for 22 years. With less than 50 days until financial meltdown, can the government be saved without any new taxes? Should the City of Los Angeles pay a million dollars for the Lakers to have a parade? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, President Obama addresses the American Medical Association, including a pitch for the so-called " public option"  to compete with private insurance. Plus, today's dramatic developments in Iran after last week's presidential election. We get reaction from Tehran, Washington and from the Persian-American community in Los Angeles.
