Up with Steve Kornaki Preview

UP: Saturday December 21

On Saturday’s Up with Steve Kornacki, Steve and his panel will look at the unfinished business Congress has left on the table – from the debt ceiling to unemployment insurance to immigration – will 2014 prove to be a productive year?

Plus, the debate over safety and privacy when it comes to your personal data. And after former Montana governor and possible democratic 2016 contender Brian Schweitzer told “UP” last month that he plans on visiting every county in Iowa… he went there this week! And took shots at Hillary Clinton while he was there.

And if it’s Saturday, it must be time for America’s fastest-growing, abbreviated, made-for-basic-cable politics and/or current events quiz show, Up Against the Clock!
