but it was still more than three times what she had paid before. the generic council points out that generics saved them $239 billio. the price hikes that threatens those kinds of savings are why a senate subcommittee will hold a hearing next week. dr. jon lapook, cbs news, new york. coming up after your local news on "cbs this morning," dr. holly phillips has more on the recent soaring cost of generic prescription drugs. plus, we'll go to long beach, california, where there's an alleged slowdown by dockworkers that could snarl holiday deliveries. and legendary rocker bob seger joins us in studio 57. and a record-breaking night at christie's auction house right here in new york city where portraits by andy warhol and works by william de kooning brought in near $853 million,
