Democrats scrambling to pass health care reform need 216 votes and tonight they are one vote closer.
After intense lobbying by President Obama, Rep. Dennis Kucinich said today he will, in fact, support the health care bill coming up for a vote in the House. Until now, he had opposed reform without a robust public plan and possible state single-payer plans.
We’ll talk to the Ohio congressman tonight about his change of mind. Plus, a Keeping Them Honest report on what’s actually in the bill. President Obama said special favors would be stripped out. But were they? Ed Henry tells us what he found.
We also have a disturbing update on those 33 Haitian children taken by American missionary Laura Silsby. It turned out they aren’t orphans; they have families. Now they are being returned to their relatives. But for many of these children, it’s not the happy homecoming you might imagine. We’ll show you why tonight in our 360 Follow.
Have you heard about the French television documentary that’s causing such a stir? The filmmakers created a fake game show called “Game of Death” to see how far ordinary people would actually stray from their sense of right and wrong. Could you do what they did? Push a button to deliver a near lethal jolt of electricity into another person’s body?
You’ll be horrified to learn how many people ignored their moral compasses and blindly followed orders. We'll take you up close.
In Crime and Punishment tonight, there’s been an arrest in connection with the death of actor Corey Haim. It comes just days after authorities launched an investigation into a prescription drug ring linked to the former child star. Investigators say dozens of doctors gave Haim prescriptions for pills that could have harmed him. We’ll talk to senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin and addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky about the new development, including how big a problem these prescription drug rings have become.
