The Struggle Over Income Inequality
President Obama made income inequality the cornerstone of his sixth State of the Union address this week, talking about ways to lift the middle class. But low-income families and individuals may face another hurdle. Annual cuts of $800 million to the federal food stamp program are expected as part of the new farm bill, which passed the House this week and moves on to the Senate on Monday.

Janet Napolitano Leads U.S. Olympic Delegation
Next week University of California President Janet Napolitano will lead the U.S. delegation to the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. As former Secretary of Homeland Security, Napolitano is well suited to the job, given heightened concerns about terrorism at the Games and Russia's decision to grant asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The two countries are also at odds over Russia's harsh stance against LGBT rights, and the 10-member delegation that Napolitano is leading has three openly gay athletes, including tennis great Billie Jean King and ice skater Brian Boitano. Scott Shafer sat down with Napolitano to discuss the Olympics and her day job as head of UC.
