The Paradox of Rising Indicators in a Troubled Economy In 2009, the Dow Jones Industrial Average bottomed out at 6,500. Since then, it's more than doubled, with another record closing last week at 15,354. Standard & Poor's and other market indexes are also setting records and housing construction is showing signs of a restoration. But eight million people are still out of work, and a smaller percentage of people own homes than a decade ago. Is it time to feel good again about the economy or not? Are we in for increased prosperity or bursting bubbles? We get a reality check.
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?

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