Airing on Wednesday, January 21, 2015: President Barack Obama hits the road this morning to continue pushing for the priorities he outlined during last night's State of the Union address. As we find out, when it comes for paying for what the President is proposing, the devil is in the details. Plus, some of the policy outlines of what the Obama Administration hopes to accomplish trickled out in White House memos ahead of the speech. One such policy would put most American workers--even many part-timers--into retirement plans by default. More on that. And last year, a record 112 million people tuned in to the Superbowl, with the next one in about a week and a half. This year's half-time show  is Lenny Kravitz with Katy Perry ... which many will not see because they might click over to YouTube at the half.
