Copenhagen climate deal, Senate healthcare deal, and 'Crazy Heart'




Monday morning on "AirTalk," we'll hear the pros-and-cons of the loose agreement reached at the UN climate summit in Copenhagen. Environmentalists are angrily split over whether the targets are anywhere near necessary to slow down the earth's heating.

We'll also detail the Senate healthcare legislation that's been months in the making. Even though it would need to be reconciled with the House version, it's important to analyze what differences the Senate's bill would make in the availability. cost, and quality of healthcare. The Congressional Budget Office will also have to weigh in on what the Senate version will cost, versus the House's.

Last Friday, our "Film Week on AirTalk" critics reviewed several major late-year releases. Their highest praise went to "Crazy Heart," starring Jeff Bridges as a worn down country singer who starts a relationsip with a much younger reporter, played by Maggie Gyllenhaal. It sounds likea "must see."
