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)
