Tonight on the program, we examine the Senate blocking of an attempt to prevent debate on new legislation. Also: how President Obama's budget will affect health care and Social Security, if an increase in high school graduation rates can be trusted, a book that tracks the history and decline of political power, disputes over infant study risks, and an Army chaplain gets the Medal of Honor.
