Healthcare Reform in Washington; Education in California

Hosted by

With a new deficit of $21 billion, California needs federal money for schools more than ever. LA Unified is battling with the teachers' union again over possible layoffs. Also, the University of California Regents agree to help re-open the Martin Luther King hospital.  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Democrats want their healthcare reform bill on the Senate floor before next week's Thanksgiving vacation. Republicans will do all they can to prevent that from happening. We hear how the bill compares to the House version and look at its chances.
