Director Brad Lichtenstein looks at effects of GM plant shutdown in new film 'As Goes Janesville'

There's a new out about Rep. Paul Ryan's hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin.

It covers the story of what happened almost four years ago, when the General Motors assembly plant was shut down. Nearly 11,000 people lost their jobs, among them Gayle Listenbee, who worked at the plant for 23 years.

On "Starting Point" this morning, filmmaker Brad Lichtenstein talks about his new documentary "As Goes Janesville" which follows the GM plant shutdown.
