Living Room – Arab and American; healthcare reform without women?

An estimated 3.5 million Americans are Arab; some are Muslims; some are in the US Armed Forces; one opened file and killed 13 people at Ft. Hood.  What's it like to be Arab-American?   We find out.  PLUS:did the Democrats sell out women to get a healthcare bill through the House?  and what are women doing about it?  With host Kris Welch, noon to one.
