Checking Stimulus Spending in California

Hosted by

With unemployment above 14%, San Bernardino County got $3.8 million to create jobs. But the County has spent so little, it might have to give $2.6 million back. What's happening to the rest of the $42 billion the state's gotten so far? Also, Randy Adams became police chief of Bell even after declaring himself “disabled.” And, in the closest race for Governor in 20 years, will LA make the difference? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, President Obama made his second major speech to the UN General Assembly today. We hear different opinions about what he said about US engagement with the rest of the world and what he left out.
