We're talking politics today, from Beacon Hill to Capitol Hill. The House has passed a bill that would put an end to individually pricing goods at the grocery store. It’s an omission that could compromise comparison shopping. Consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren is still getting heat for putting her Cherokee ancestry to use. Will her tiny connection to Native Americans remain a mega problem on the campaign trail?
On the road to the White House, there’s a major obstacle for third party candidates: Americans Elect failed to get an alternative candidate on the ballot. And, Newark Mayor Corey Booker tells the Obama campaign, enough with the Bain game. Instead of smearing Mitt Romney’s corporate past, Booker says it’s time to focus on the issues that matter to voters.
