Airing on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015: President Barack Obama will reveal details of a budget plan that he will ask Congress to chew on. New info is emerging this morning on a piece of this that will be especially controversial: the President is proposing a tax on the foreign earnings U.S. companies stash abroad. More on that. And last night at the Super Bowl, two things happened nearly simultaneously: Butler picked off the pass at the one yard line to secure the Patriots win, and pre-printed Patriots Win commemorative gear went on sale. It's a huge industry and a lot of it is fake. Now, federal investigators have been trying to crack down. Plus, do you toil in distributed work environment? How do you "manage" the boss when they're across town or across the country or world? We look at how to work with a "Virtual Boss."
