Marines in Afghanistan (Timothy Kudo)

GOP Presidential candidates take the fight for the nomination to Illinois, while the Senate takes up the JOBS Act, a business de-regulation bill that SEC Chair Mary Schapiro warns would expose investors to fraud. The U.N. Security council meets to discuss the future of Afghanistan, while American officials debate the American role in the country. Finally, the Transportation Security Administration announces new regulations for elderly passengers as the owners of the Mets go to trial over money they made in the Madoff scandal.

Joining us to talk about the stories of this week is Callie Crossley, host of The Callie Crossley Show on WGBH, Boston Public Radio. Also with us is Charlie Herman, business and economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC.
