Is California's Initiative Process Out of Control?

Hosted by

California voters are faced with 11 initiatives on next month's ballot, four supported by lone millionaires with their own ideas and interests. But the initiative process was designed as direct democracy, to give ordinary voters a check on special interests or government actions they don't like. Has it become a system of making laws only for those who can afford it? Why do voters love it anyway? Is there any way it can be restored to its original purpose? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Obama and Romney on foreign policy with two weeks left to go.
