With the nomination of three new Justices for the Federal Appeals Court in the District of Columbia, President Obama has thrown down the gauntlet, daring Republicans to block them.  And Democratiac constituencies have warned Senate Leader Reid to change the rules to the Republicans from  filibustering or lose their supporft.  Who will win?  Dave Johnson tells us about the battle lines and the combatants in segament 2.

The release last week of the Social Security Trustees Annual Report debunked the lies about Social Security going bankrupt.  It is doing just fine and will continue to do so for up to 75 years with a good economy.  But you wouldn't know it if you listened to Republicans and the right wing media who are still pushing to kill it and hand the body to to Wall Street to pick over.  Segment 1.
