  • CONGRESS TAKEOUT:  We speak with our Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich about how Congressional Democrats are regrouping on health care reform in the wake of losing the Massachussetts Senate race.
  • MONEY TAKEOUT: Starbucks was hit hard by the economic crisis, closing hundreds of stores across the country. New York Times reporter Louise Story explains why things are looking up for the coffee company.
  • RESPONSES: Listeners weigh in on why Democrats lost their Senate seat in Massachussetts.

"Democrats have decided it would be politically unsavory to ram something through on health care befoe Scott Brown gets there, when they still have 60 votes. The subtext though, is that health care still has to get done."
