On Sunday morning, Dan Pfeiffer, a top adviser to President Obama, fanned out across five Sunday shows, in an effort to move the administration past the controversies that are currently distracting from the administration's second-term agenda.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made the rounds on Sunday morning to insist that taxes are no longer up for discussion, after last week's deal to avert the fiscal cliff, and signaled that Republicans are ready to fight over the debt ceiling.

If federal officials pass a law allowing people registered to carry concealed weapons in one state to carry those weapons in other states, it would have a "devastating effect" on New York law enforcement, warned Eric Schneiderman, the state attorney general.
