Tax deductions for Stand Your Ground laws. Tax credits for prancing horses. Romney praises national health system -- if its Israeli.

Bob Edgar

Bob Edgar is a former congressman who knows how lobbying works. In fact, he heads the public interest lobby Common Cause. Mr. Edgar has filed a complaint with the IRS exposing the lobbying tactics of a right-wing group that funds its nefarious work with tax-deductible contributions – not the way lobbying is supposed to work. http://www.commoncause.org

Judd Legum

Bill Press talks with Judd Legum about health care reform and Mitt Romney. http://www.billpressshow.com/ http://thinkprogress.org/author/judd/
