The President’s 2013 budget it out this morning, and it’s certain to lead to confrontation between the Democrats and Republicans over the same old issues - payroll taxes, revenues, medicare spending - as well as some new ones. We’ll take a look and ask whether the tough issues are really being addressed in the proposal. Plus - Rick Santorum’s on a roll, carrying the momentum he gained in last week’s contests in spite of Mitt Romney’s weekend win in Maine and in the CPAC straw poll. Does he have what it takes to land an upset? We’ll explore it all and more on NOW at noon.
