First on the program, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Sen. Robert Menendez (D- N.J.,) discuss the politics of a payroll tax cut amid the Senate’s 89-10 vote in favor of extending the cut and unemployment benefits by two months.
Then, GOP Presidential Candidate Jon Huntsman sees a slight bump in the New Hampshire polls – a state he’s focused his campaign on exclusively – but Romney holds a clear lead in the Granite State. We’ll ask the Republican presidential candidate about his strategy, the economy, and his GOP rivals.
Also, we'll talk about the end of the U.S. war in Iraq. We’ll get perspective from former presidential envoy to Iraq, Paul Bremer; former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. James Cartwright (Ret.); and Robin Wright author of “Rock the Casbah”.
It’s all this Sunday at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. ET
UPDATE: Director of the President's National Economic Council Gene Sperling will be on the show.
