Alan Ray: It was the late Boston Congressman and House Speaker Tip O'Neil who said, "All politics is local." That may be nowhere more evident, or more true, than in the huge federal stimulus package approved in Congress without a single Republican vote in the House.

We're joined on These Days by two members of the San Diego congressional delegation.
- Brian Bilbray, Republican congressman representing California's 50th Congressional District.
- Bob Filner, Democratic congressman representing California's 51st Congressional District.
