Episode Summary

11.02.07 Broadcast
A panel of economic analysts disusses recent reports on the nation's economy and unemployment, which paint a mixed picture about the country's financial health. The chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Nancy Nord, and her predecessor have come under criticism for taking trips paid for by groups they regulate. In back-to-back interviews, Nord responds to the accusations after a member of Congress explains why she has called for Nord's resignation. While the U.S Congress struggles to revise a state health insurance bill covering low-income children, Oregon officials are planning their own solution, with a proposed increase in tobacco taxes to cover children's health care costs. The NewsHour reports on Oregon's proposal. This week, lawmakers questioned Attorney General-nominee Michael Mukasey's stance on torture tactics and Democratic presidential hopefuls stepped up attacks on front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton. Analysts Mark Shields and Rich Lowry discuss the week's developments.moreless
