Today on the Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET - Critics of Obama focus on his loss of power since the election, but the president could still implement significant reforms without congressional approval.  An executive order requiring new campaign finance disclosures would shine light on “dark money” from governmental contractors, including many large corporations.  Investigative reporter Lee Fang of the Nation Institute and founder of Republic Report joins us today to talk about Obama’s power to reform.

4:35pm ET - Now with a Republican majority coming into office, environmental policies are vulnerable.  Republican leadership has made it a priority to push the Keystone Pipeline—a controversial plan for an oil line that spans from Texas all the way to Canada.  Republicans will have a filibuster proof majority, plus the support of some Democrats on the proposal.  Obama might be on the verge of compromising on the pipeline, but other environmental issues and precedents will also be at stake this term.  The Huffington Post's Kate Sheppard joins us to talk about Keystone and other critical issues in US environmental policy.
