Filibuster Deal and Stand Your Ground
The U.S. Senate reached a deal to avoid the so-called "nuclear option," which would've changed Senate rules and prohibited filibuster on nominees. The new deal will allow nominations to face an up or down vote. Host Ben Kieffer talks with Wayne Moyer of Grinnell College and Tim Hagle of University of Iowa about the deal and what it means. They also discuss calls to repeal "stand your ground" laws in the wake of the George Zimmerman acquittal.
