Sunday's Guests (July 22): Taxes, global warming and the food supply, the crisis in Syria

On Sunday's show we'll be talking about the vastly different experiences of George and Mitt Romney when it comes to taxes. We'll also examine the effect of climate change on our food supply, and ask whether the current drought covering large swaths of the U.S. is the new normal.  Plus, we'll examine the escalating violence in Syria and its stakes not just for the region, but for the U.S. and our allies as well.
