Will Rep. Michael Burgess Change His Vote?

Burgess says he'll continue to study the measure, but right now he's leaning toward voting no again. He says the bailout package is very unpopular in his home district. Burgess tells Ari Shapiro that he doesn't think the "other stuff" added to the Senate's version is enough to change the minds of his constituents.
