Healthcare Reform Is about to Begin in California

Hosted by

Republicans say they want to repeal healthcare reform, but it won't be until long after California's newly elected Insurance Commissioner puts it into effect. We talk with Democrat Doug Jones, whose election this week was opposed by the insurance industry. Isn't Obama's reform more of a Republican plan in the first place? We also talk to a Republican consultant who says he knew Meg Whitman had lost the election when she said she'd submit to a lie detector. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Republicans claim a mandate to cut spending, but which programs do this week's voters want sacrificed? The GOP will be in control of the House and the Senate Minority Leader wants Barack Obama to be a one-term president.  Will the White House be looking for compromise?
