2:00 amWashington Week [#5201H] * President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail this week for a bus tour through parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania where he is expected to defend his economic policies, the decision to rescue the auto industry, and calls for more investment in manufacturing as examples of his efforts to fight for the middle class and protect American jobs. Meanwhile the Obama re-election campaign has launched a new TV ad attacking Republican Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital accusing him of running companies that promoted outsourcing of US jobs overseas.
* The presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney spent part of the week enjoying the July 4th holiday in New Hampshire with his family but also found time to talk to reporters about the Supreme Court's health care decision. The former Massachusetts governor said he believes the high court made it clear that the federal health care insurance mandate is a "tax." But when asked about the penalty tied to the Massachusetts health insurance mandate that he helped pass, Romney said the mandate was just that, a mandate and not a tax and added that states have the option to issue mandates while the federal government does not.
* Gwen Ifill will examine the continuing political implications over the Supreme Court's health care decision and the state of the race for the White House just four months until Election Day with Dan Balz of The Washington Post, Jan Crawford of CBS News, Charles Babington of the Associated Press, and Amy Walter of ABC News. duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE

4:30 amNeed To Know [#243H] Cleaning Up The Tax Mess Our tax code has been described as a morass of different rates, deductions, loopholes, and subsides that is different depending on each individual taxpayers situation. Homeowners are treated differently than renters; high earners are paying lower rates, in some cases, than middle-class Americans. And, on top of that, the nation faced a $1.3 trillion deficit last year. So, how do we make our tax code simpler and fairer? And how do we produce more revenue without stifling job creation? This week, NTK's Ray Suarez hosts a panel of tax experts who debate how to fix the tax mess. Our panel of tax experts includes former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer; Emory University tax law expert Dorothy Brown; Bruce Bartlett, who served presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush; and Cato Institute economist Dan Mitchell. (Originally broadcast March 9, 2012) duration 26:46 STEREO TVRE
