Hosted by

Governor Brown is cutting state mental health programs to save money, but claims there will be an improvement in patient care.

Also, as another editor resigns from the LA Times, are more cutbacks in store?  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, holiday sausage-making on Capitol Hill.
