Moran on cliff deal; Ending slavery

Today on NewsTalk, Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) talked about congressional approval of a tax measure that kept the U.S. from going over the fiscal cliff. Although most Democrats supported the bill, Moran did not. He believes the White House failed to use the leverage it had over divided House Republicans.
