Reports have surfaced that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked to speak to Congress in March.

Michele Bachmann: I Outsmarted Progressives! This clip from the Majority Report, live M-F at 12 noon EST and via daily podcast.
What the heck? Singer Cee Lo Green took to Twitter to claim that it's only "real" rape if the victim remembers the assault. Since when did talent show judges start repeating the insane mantras of Republicans?
The National Labor Relations Board acts to protect fast food workers rights in a major labor ruling against McDonald's.
Medicare and Social Security are in even better fiscal shape than we previously realized. Let's take a look at this Conservative kyrptonite: the massive success of Social Security and Medicare. (Added bonus: Affordable Care Act seems to be helping stabilize both!)
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's campaign admits to being behind a group of protesters following opposition candidate Zephyr Teachout in one of the oddest bits of political theater in recent memory.
Paul Ryan's plan is to basically shame the poor. Let's take a look into the bizarre paternalism of Paul Ryan’s poverty plan, one he disguises as a change to block grants. One that goes against the very mechanism that has made safety nets in this country matter for nearly a century.

Even after adjusting for inflation, the average 2014 college graduate has twice as much debt as their 1994 counterparts. Just 20 years. This year's newest members of the work force (or slaves to more debt in grad school) wrestled the title of "Most Indebted Class in U.S. History" from last year's reigning champs. Yay school!
While it's patently ridiculous to argue the reality of climate change, there is an argument to be said about the way scientists are selling the idea to the American people (and the world at large). Can they do a better job of explaining the facts — before it's too late?
