This Sunday on State of the Union...

[Updated Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET]

Our main focus will be on the last minute negotiations to raise the country’s debt ceiling. We'll ask Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner what the White House's next move is.

Then, what stands in the way of a compromise? We'll discuss with two lawmakers on each side of the issue: California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Rep. Tom Price of Georgia.

We’ll also ask Sen. Feinstein about her bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. New York on Sunday becomes the sixth U.S. state to start marrying same-sex couples.

Finally, we caught up with presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty in Iowa. What message does he have for President Obama, and why, with a well-funded campaign and several trips to key states, are his poll numbers still mired in the single digits?

Wednesday Sneak Peek

It’s Wednesday, and here’s where we stand...

Well, it used to be months, now we’re looking at weeks – less than two, to be exact – until the Treasury Department says we’ll have to start writing I.O.U.s instead of checks to our creditors. So are we any closer to a deal? Depends on who you ask. The bipartisan “Gang of Six” presented a plan to about 50 senators and received a warm response. But there are some serious questions as to whether or not it’s even possible to put together a major deal before August 2nd. The likely alternative: a short-term stop gap. So yes, the budget will be a big topic again this Sunday.

Sen. Graham has no confidence in compromise

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham says he doesn't think either party can agree on a debt limit increase before an August deadline. “I am going to focus on Plan A. That, to me, is the only plan that will work. It's the real deal, not a big deal. I think that’s going to be the Republican position."

WH Budget Chief: Time to act is now

White House Budget Director Jacob Lew says it's progress that both sides agree that the debt ceiling must be raised. Lew: "There might be a fringe who believes that playing with Armageddon is a good idea, but I don't think that's where the majority will be."
