Today on The Signorile Show!

3:35pm ET -  The Republican controlled Congress has been in session for almost three months, but already there is serious doubt as to whether or not it will be able of keeping the government running and pass any meaningful policy changes into law.  Furthermore, this week is shaping up to be an important test for the Republican leadership, as Congress prepares to take up a budget resolution for the next fiscal year.   Joining us today to discuss how this process in particular is exposing a rift within the Republican caucus between those who want to increase military spending and those who want to reduce deficits, is Neil Irwin, the senior economics correspondent for The New York Times, where he writes for The Upshot.  You can also follow Neil on twitter.

4:35pm ET - In his new book Injustices: The Supreme Court’s History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted Ian Millhiser, a senior constitutional policy analyst at the Center for American Progress and the editor of ThinkProgress Justice argues that few American institutions have inflicted greater suffering on ordinary people than the Supreme Court of the United States, and that since its inception, the justices of have bent the arc of American history away from justice and acted as a shield for the wealthy and the powerful.  Ian joins us today to discuss his book which is a powerful indictment of the venerated institution.  You can also follow Ian on twitter.
