While moderate Republican and independent women express their frustration with the GOP's stance on social issues like contraception, President Obama's reelection team is trying to seize the moment and court female voters for November. Meanwhile, the Republican candidates head south, where primary voters will vote in Alabama and Mississippi on Tuesday. And while the jobs numbers looked promising last week, a number of new economic indicators will tell us much more about the economy this week, with figures on consumer spending, retail sales, and inflation. Finally, Eurozone finance ministers will decide whether Greece deserves a second bailout this week.
Joining us to talk about the stories of this week is Maggie Haberman, senior writer at Politico. Also with us is Charlie Herman, business and economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC.
