Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The IRS will change some of the ground rules when it comes to the unlimited and anonymous spending that groups have been able to do in political races after the Supreme Court's ruling on Citizens United. Sunday is December 1, which is also a big day for the Obama administration's implementation of the Affordable Care Act. What's the latest on health care? And finally, Thanksgiving week is always a big week for movies, which means this week will be big for the latest movie in the Hunger Games franchise. The film is already going great guns at the box office, but it’s not just kids who are watching.
