The Syrian Conflict: Los Angeles Points of View

Hosted by

Local Congress members are among those briefed this afternoon on the case for action against Syria. We hear from two Democrats: Brad Sherman, who went in favoring the President's limited strikes and Janice Hahn, who has defied her party's leadership so far and said, "No."Also, Syrian-Americans who live in LA run the gamut from supporters of US military action to supporters of the Assad regime. We hear all sides.

Obamacare, immigration reform, a possible government shutdown and defaulting on the national debt are all on the table as Congress returns from the August recess.  Can the current members handle it all?
