Medicare spirals toward bankruptcy despite ongoing gov't attempts to make it right. Steve Kroft reports on what is going wrong and what needs to be done.
There are maybe 5,000 tigers still wild in the Indian jungles. There were 100,000 not that long ago. If there isn't a solution found for the ongoing poaching and encroachment into their natural habitat, the only tigers that may be left are those in the zoos. Scott Pelley examines this devastation.
