CBS LAS VEGAS-Angelina Jolie has revealed she recently had a preventive double mastectomy after learning she has a “faulty” gene that gave her an 87 percent risk of developing breast cancer. The 37-year-old Oscar-winning actress says she decided to go public about her decision to encourage other women to be proactive to see if they are also at risk. Dr. Lawrence Gardner, Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada, talks about the double mastectomy procedure and why someone would get this done.

As new details emerge about the Internal Revenue Service’s controversial practices of targeting conservative groups, the Justice Department has ordered an investigation on the subject and Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday the department was coordinating with the FBI to assess whether or not any laws were broken and called the IRS’s actions “outrageous and unacceptable.” Wayne Allen Root, Author of “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide: How to Survive, Thrive, and Prosper during Obamageddon”, talks about how he was a victim of the IRS and how this can lay the ground work for impeachment.
