Economic Inequality Fuels an Angry Electorate Five days before the Iowa caucuses, the presidential campaigns of both political parties are more chaotic than ever. Donald Trump is dropping out of tomorrow's final debate in a battle with Fox News. Bernie Sanders spent part of today with the President in the Oval Office. Meantime, prospective voters face a troubling reality: wealth is concentrated in fewer hands since the 19th-Century and the days of the Robber Barons. Democrats and Republicans are appealing in different ways to Americans who fear they're being left behind by a booming economy and a changing culture.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.

We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
