Tonight on the program, we examine the agreement between the GOP-led House and the Democrat-led Senate to pass the long-stalled payroll tax cuts. Also, we look at multiple bombings in Iraq after the U.S. troop withdrawal, the Pentagon's admission of error in a Pakistani airstrike, a comparison of higher-and-lower-class shopping, and if the bird flu could be used in bioterrorism attacks.
