Economy recovers, but many still left behind

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen testifies on Capitol Hill touting the nation’s growing economy, but the impact isn’t reaching everyone. Manuel Rapalo breaks down what Yellen had to say. And Lindsay France goes more in depth with the CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, Peter Schiff. Mexico might be taking a stand against Donald Trump’s talk on NAFTA, as one senator from Mexico wants to start buying alternative corn from South America. Then, after the break, Brigida Santos tells us about the dam overflowing in Oroville, California and why state officials may have known about the dam’s issues going back 12 years.
