U.S. Representatives Nan Hayworth (R-NY-19) and Bill Pascrell (D-NJ-8) are two co-chairs of the Hurricane Irene congressional coalition. They discuss how FEMA disaster relief funding has become part of the still ongoing budget battles in Washington -- and react to Chris Christie's decision not to run for president. Plus: Mike Fishman of SEIU 32BJ discusses why unions are joining the Occupy Wall Street movement; Lawrence Pintak, author of The New Arab Journalist: Mission and Identity in a Time of Turmoil, reflects on the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki; and a closer look at the Nobel prizes for science.
