Coming up on Hardball…


Cut, cap and balance…or duck, dodge, and dismantle? We’re covering tonight’s House vote on the Republican’s answer to the debate over the economy.  And Tea Party Republican Joe Walsh is circulating a letter among House Republicans saying don’t raise the debt ceiling, even if it means letting the country default! He plays Hardball tonight.


Next up: The Strategists, Todd Harris and Steve McMahon, tackle strategy in the political fight over the debt ceiling. Plus, we have the results of a new NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll.


And don’t miss the news from today’s parliamentary hearing with Rupert and James Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks, which took an unexpected turn… msnbc’s Martin Bashir and ITN’s Robert Moore have the story.


Plus, actor Martin Sheen stopped by with Judge Robert Russell to talk about a crucial part of criminal justice reform: drug courts. Hear what they have to say tonight!
