Buffett Rule: blocked. Senate Republicans voted down a move to open debate on the Buffett Rule. Will this hurt the GOP in the long run with middle class voters? We’ll ask Rep. Peter King (R-NY) for his take. We’ll also ask the House Homeland Security Chairman to weigh in on the Secret Service scandal. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey said, “We let the boss down,” and Rep. Darrell Issa is alleging that the agents could have exposed themselves to “blackmail.” How far will this investigation take us?
What exactly goes on inside the world’s most exclusive fraternity? Time Deputy Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs and Time Executive Editor Michael Duffy give us a look under the hood with their new book, “The Presidents Club.” The real thing is actually a lot more interesting than Funny or Die’s 2010 interpretation of the crew. Note: The code inside the White House is *not* 1-2-3-4.
Huffington Post Co-Founder Arianna Huffington is celebrating the website’s first Pulitzer Prize for its 10-part series on severely wounded vets. New York Times Columnist Nick Kristof also joins the conversation to talk about his latest column on veteran suicide.
We’ll round out the show with a visit from actor and UN Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador Don Cheadle and CraigMichaels’ Michael Owens. For our Green is Universal segment, they’ll talk about the 2012 Sustainable Operations Summit in New York - and why it’s glam to go green.
Also joining the table: Donny Deutsch, Mark Halperin, Jim Vandehei, Eugene Robinson, Melody Barnes, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Brian Shactman
