Obama and Israel; Californians without Health Insurance

Hosted by

Unemployment in California is increasing the number of people who don't have health insurance and driving up costs for those who do. Also, Democrats say they're baffled because Governor Schwarzenegger has vetoed spending reductions, including some he proposed himself. Republicans say they were “parlor tricks.” On our rebroadcast of today/s To the Point, the Obama Administration is making nice with Israel today -- at least in public -- but tensions are still high over housing plans in East Jerusalem and American credibility in the Middle East. We hear from Jerusalem and Washington.
