Supreme Court Hears Debate on Prop 8

Hosted by

Chief Justice Ron George said today the state constitution is different from what it was when he wrote last year’s opinion legalizing same-sex marriage. Will Prop 8 stand?  What about marriages performed before the November election? On our rebroadcast of today’s To the Point, American International Group, the world’s largest insurance company, got $150 billion in federal bailout money in the last quarter of 2008 and still lost $62 billion. The Obama administration has promised $30 billion more, but today the Senate Finance Committee threatened not to go along unless it finds out where that federal money is going.
