The House has passed the "cut, cap and balance" deficit reduction plan backed by tea party conservatives but dismissed by President Barack Obama, who offered strong praise for another proposal put together by a bipartisan group of senators. We'll have the Raw Politics. Plus, Japan blocks the sale of meat from farms near the crippled nuclear power plant. And, we begin a new series 'Con Men.' We'll look at imposter Clark Rockefeller and what police say are his web of lies.
