From guns to the economy, Republicans are out of touch with America and new polling proves it!

Tonight on “The Ed Show” at 8p & 11pET on msnbc, Ed Schultz will ask the BIG Congressional Panel how these numbers impact their fight for progress. We’ll hear from Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA), Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) and Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA).

Then, first it was Brewer, then Kasich. Now Rick Scott is embracing Obama’s “socialist” vision for America.  Howard Fineman, NBC News Political Analyst and Editorial Director of the Huffington Post Media Group, reveals why the Florida governor flipped on Obamacare.

A new report proves the rich are using capital gains to ride the wave of income inequality. New numbers will blow your mind.

The chief detective in the Oscar Pistorius case is facing attempted murder charges of his own. Roy Black, Criminal Defense Attorney & NBC Legal Analyst, and Marcia Clark, former prosecutor for the O.J. Simpson trial and author of “Blind Ambition,” comment on a story that just keeps getting weirder.

Private prisons make billions by putting people in jail for frivolous reasons. You won’t believe how they’re using those profits.

And in the BIG Finish, radical right wing conspiracies are showing up in the halls of government more than ever. Ed will ask Dan Rather, Managing Editor & Anchor of Dan Rather Reports and former CBS Evening News Anchor, if the right wing media is hurting the country.
