NOW Today: That other branch of government

Updated

Remember that other branch of government?

With all the talk about 2012 and the Supreme Court’s hearing of the health care law next week, the spotlight has definitely been off America’s beloved Congress.  We thought it was about time to take a look at what’s on the table and how it ties into presidential politics (no surprise here, the two work hand in hand).

We also have Jesse Benton, chairman of the Ron Paul campaign, to talk about today’s planned money bomb and a Vice President Paul - the admitted goal of that campaign at this point.

Later in the show, a look at gun control.  NOW hasn’t even had 100 shows and we’ve talked several times - always after a tragedy involving guns - about reform.  Yet nothing ever seems to happen.  The head of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence will join a special second panel to discuss in depth.
