On today's show we'll look at the big-picture economic affects of the election results. New House, same deficit, so what can Democrats change? We talk to senior reporter Kimberly Adams about how the budget deficit will play out with the new Democratic majority. Voters in Idaho, Utah and Nebraska approved Medicaid expansion, meaning nearly 300,000 Americans could get coverage. A look at the future of Medicaid funding in these traditionally red states. And, in nonelection news, Puerto Rico has been approved for a $4 billion deal to assist its debt crisis. Plus, the latest installment of Corner Office. This time, we talk to Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard Tyson about the challenges of the health care industry.
