The Obama economy is on a roll despite NO help from Republicans. 236,000 jobs were created last month, bringing the unemployment rate down to 7.7%. How did we get here?

Tonight on “The Ed Show” at 8pET on msnbc, Ed Schultz welcomes Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) to dissect the surging Obama recovery.

Then, Ed will dive into the failure of conservative economics with David Cay Johnston, columnist for Reuters, Pulitzer Prize winner, author (“The Fine Print,” “Perfectly Legal” and “Free Lunch”), and Peter Morici, Economist and Professor of Business at the University of Maryland.

The sequester cuts Arizona’s border patrol and now Gov. Jan Brewer is crying for help. The head of the border patrol union, Colleen Kelley, joins Ed tonight!

Republican welfare for oil companies is so big you can see it from space. Ed will show us that.

And over 130 House Republicans voted “no” on the violence against women act. Now some of them are trying to take credit for it anyway. Our BIG panel calls them out. We’ll check in with Susan Del Percio, Republican Strategist, msnbc Contributor, Michelle Goldberg, Senior contributing writer, Newsweek & The Daily Beast NY, and Karen Finney, msnbc Political Analyst and Former DNC Communications Director.

A Republican former congressman steps out with the truth on Speaker John Boehner’s dirty dealings.

And in the BIG Finish, the fake pimp who was out to get ACORN gets slapped with a $100,000 bill. In a BIG EXCLUSIVE, Juan Carlos Vera, the former ACORN worker who is making James O’Keefe pay joins Ed tonight!
