Democrats are refusing to budge on letting the Bush tax cuts expire, even if that means letting all the tax rates expire. And now big labor is on board!

Tonight, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) and Robert Reich, former U.S. Labor Secretary, UC Berkeley Professor, to talk about the latest movement in the fight for the middle class.

Then, a judge orders mediation instead of allowing more than 18,000 jobs to vanish if the makers of Twinkies go out of business. Matt Taibbi, a journalist for Rolling Stone, joins Ed for that.

Sen. John McCain asks for an apology from U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice. Katrina Vanden Heuvel, Co-owner/Editor of The Nation magazine, sounds off on that one.

Tea Party Rep. Allen West has been defeated but he just won’t quit. We’ll find out what’s next from Mitch Ceasar, Democratic Chairman, Broward County, Florida.

Big banks are trying to block Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren from doing her job. We’ll have the details.

And in the Big Finish, Walmart employees are fed up with low wages and bad working conditions and they could be planning a strike on “Black Friday.” Josh Eidelson, Contributing Writer, The Nation, will have that story.

It’s going to another blockbuster @EdShow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
