Can Washington Ignore the Biggest State in the Union?

Hosted by

In 1975, a local newspaper headline said, "Ford to New York City: Drop Dead." But President Gerald Ford relented and agreed to back loans that kept the city from going bankrupt. Now California is asking Washington for a similar kind of help. Will Washington want to see sick children out on the street? What about the municipal bond market?
