Tonight on 360°, politicians who rail against government spending, but who also want their share of the very stimulus plan they're attacking. We're keeping them honest. Plus,  more than 100 people killed in Haiti. Deaths that didn't have to happen after January's earthquake.

    @sueinmn Actually I think banks review loan documents thoroughly.

    These interviews with Yoko Ono are painful in many ways but it is good to hear about her life with John Lennon. Inspiring and important too to be hearing about art and songs.

    it would be a great start if they knew more about their own country to begin with...

    Last weekend there was an interview with Yoko Ono in a Berlin newspaper. The journalist that conducted it complaied in her artikle that Yoko Ono did not say anything important, that it was just BlaBla.
    Her talk with Anderson was no Blabla, but the best interview with Yoko Ono I have seen or read in ages.
    It just makes a difference who conducts an interview!

    @David, i can't remember the exact number of casualties given, but it was significantly high than what the Bush Administration insisted were the civilian deaths.

    I beleive that over time, the numbers will go higher and many more "truths" about the war will be revealed.

    Very interesting interview with Yoko and I'm impressed with her willingness to share parts of her grief. She is a survivor.

    John Lennon was a musical genius. He was a visionary musician. He also wanted to see the world heal. I still miss his inspiration

    Anderson, this is really a good interview with Yoko Ono. It saddens me always when you talk about losing your brother though..
    I remember as a child how struck my parents were about the murder on John Lennon.
    Grateful that I know his (and the Beatles) music.

    I have enjoyed this series of interviews with Yoko Ono. She is a beautiful woman and very articulate. You can gain a lot from what she's talking about. I agree with her. At the end of the day, your private life is your private life. Overall, a great interview Anderson even tying in your brother's death with John's death in the sense where the world just stopped in time.

    This interview with Yoko has been so informative abut John and their relationship.

    Sometimes, when people are that close, they can "feel" something different, a warning perhaps.

    Very classy comments re: Paul's reaction to their relationship.

    Thank you Anderson for such a deep interview with Yoko.

    Imagine, the song, was one of his best!! Also, Give Peace a Chance, so many more with and without the Beatles.

    @Elmer Cyr The Haitian political system has been very corrupt for decades.

    All famous people need balance of privacy with public attention. Yoko Ono is a wise woman

    to mNicole from Netherland. Good question Nicole.
    There is a good reason , there is a good chance the Haitians people didn't get all that money your talking about! Would that be surprising? One thing for sure, somebody always het rich with thes donations.

    @Starr what were the numbers?

    I agree the man up comment is rediculous as you said.

    Are there lawyers who help homeowners?

    good evening dr gupta

    from a medical perspective it must be very frustrating to see something that has been or could be eradicated start to reappear

    may haiti not be forgotten between now and the one-year occurrence of the earthquake

    We streamlined ours and the bank made mistake after mistake. They had the interest rate set over one point higher than we were paying rather than the decrease as intended. This was a simple FHA streamline, not a mod or refinance. They lost documents. You cant possibly read every word of the papers but people need to know the pertinant pages to verify. Banks are greed and need to be labeled to evil and made to fail.

    You were and are right Dr. Gupta.

    I remember your last visit to Haiti, you made it very clear that Cholera and diseases like it could be avoided if only clean water and antibiotics were distributed properly.

    I will never forget when you walked to a whare house and got food, water and medical supplies for a camp not far away.
    It truly is unbelievable that with so many donations and 10 months later, the people of Haiti continue to suffer and die.

    These forclosure mills are an outrage!

    It is very sad that the banks and other large entities are taking advantage of those struggling. I certainly hope the investigations will put an end to this!!

    This cholera is what Sean Penn was afraid off.
    So sad this really is happening.
    How can this happen when there has been raised so much money by different country's?!

    I would never sign my name to something I don't fully understand. Never understood the rubber stamping that occurs at these banks. Pushing all these foreclosures so quickly without thorough analysis only places these properties on the bank's books and that never looks good for them nor the families displaced.
    If there are not enough qualified employees to properly do this job, then HIRE. With thousands of people out of work, what about training new people. What a mess!

    These forclosure mills are an outrage!

    The banks are "fat" with money now. Why can't they work out new terms with owners who can afford a fair and realistic mortgage...there have to be many people who could qualify.

    What are they going to do with all of the vacant properties. Trying to get a mortgage these days if very, very demanding.

    I know several people, who if they could get a better interest rate, could afford and stay in their properties.

    Not only how many jobs are still being outsourced, what about the changes the republicans want with entitlements. They have no answers to the people effected. Wall Street loses our share in the market while they create their wealth, what can a society of poverty become when it becomes to large to handle with no government help as many propose? Any real answers here?

    Will Can from the National Review, talking to Sanjay Gupta, in response to the impact of the stimulus said that "your pulling money out of the private sector that could be creating other jobs".

    THe problem with his rhetoric is that the private markets had almost a decade to do just that as they were given trillions of stimulus money in the form of tax cuts for large corporations. Instead of creating more jobs here in this country they outsourced millions of jobs to other countries. Will Can's argument is flawed.

    @sueinmn It does directly undermine the Republican's complaints that no jobs are being created with the stimulus, clearly plenty of jobs.

    That is a lot of political star power coming to help Sen Reid.

    I truly wonder how all of this will go in the midterm elections. I keep hearing Republican party is ahead in the polls, but wonder how the public actually views the economy for one thing.
