Hosted by

Los Angeles' elected officials weren't talking in public today as were negotiating with powerful unions. Will layoffs, furloughs and cutbacks in services be needed to save $405 million? Plus, California prison officials admit they may be held in contempt by federal judges. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, attacks on America's first black President and his proposals have inflamed America's ongoing controversy about race and politics at a time of economic anxiety. We look at the possible consequences.
