A conversation with Sen. Richard Burr

Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr voted against the economic stimulus package in February, and he hasn't seen anything to make him think he made the wrong decision. He spoke to WFAE's Mark Rumsey about the stimulus money, the banking industry's problems and Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter's decision to become a Democrat. As a result, Democrats are now only one member shy of having a veto-proof majority.
