Obama Gets a Senate Healthcare Bill for Christmas

Hosted by

As a somewhat battered and bruised healthcare reform bill makes its way to what appears to be certain passage in the Senate, critics from both parties are complaining about the bill. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, what deals did the Democrats make to keep it alive? What battles lie ahead when the House and Senate meet to create the final piece of legislation? Also, airlines will pay for making travelers wait, and the White House names a cybersecurity chief, as the FBI investigates a possible hacking at Citibank. Sara Terry guest hosts.
