This Sunday...

An Exclusive interview with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on his meeting with the President and whether Congress and the White House can come to an agreement to minimize the impact of the forced spending cuts.

White House Economic Director Gene Sperling joins us to discuss his dust-up with Bob Woodward, and on minimizing the political and economic fallout from Washington’s latest so-called “manufactured crisis.”

Speaking of lurching from crisis to crisis, much of what is happening in Washington right now has its roots in what some would call the perpetual campaign – members more interested in politicking than legislating. We’ll talk to the two guys responsible for electing Democrats and Republicans to Congress: Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) and Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR)

Plus, Stephen Moore from the Wall Street Journal, USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page, and Mark Zandi from Moody's Analytics on how Washington gridlock will affect the economy.

Watch it Sunday at 9am & NOON ET.

WH budget chief says no new revenue

White House economic adviser Gene Sperling says any deal to raise the debt ceiling will not bring in new revenue. "Nobody is talking about raising any revenues over the next year and a half. [Obama] has been pushing very hard to cut taxes with the payroll tax cut extension for next year."
