This Sunday on State of the Union

Will the federal government shut down next month? Why can’t lawmakers compromise on a federal budget? We’ll talk domestic politics with the senior senator from New York, Chuck Schumer.

Then, as protests unravel across the Middle East, we’ll assess their implications for the United States with the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Indiana Sen. Dick Lugar.

Plus, looking ahead with a man who's held nearly every job in Washington, Donald Rumsfeld. He joins us to dissect the recent turmoil in the Middle East, the future of Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden, President Obama’s first term and much more.

And finally, with President’s Day around the corner, we’ll close with interviews with two former commanders-in-chief.

    How can we expect lawmakers to compromise when the lawmakers of Wisconsin abandoned their state, holding Wisconsin hostage until their demands, the demands of the government employees are met. How much worse can it get than to watch lawmakers and the government employees use their government power to keep the State of Wisconsin at their mercy and the communities, cities, the state seize to function.
