Snowden, Food Stamps and an Immigration Thunderbolt

Hosted by , ,

Edward Snowden is seeking asylum from Russia. A new Quinnipiac University poll shows more American voters consider him a whistle-blower rather than a traitor, by 55 to 34%. Should Russia grant him asylum? Tension in Congress was high this week as House Republicans passed a farm bill that stripped funding for food stamps. The decades-old program cost $80 billion out of the $100 billion a year bill. And debate raged over the immigration bill. Our conservative Rich Lowry penned an op-ed about the debate. Should the US continue support to Egypt, even if there was a military coup? It's a 98%-Zimmerman-free show.
