As the world reacts to the revolution in Libya, we’ll discuss the wave of uprisings sweeping the Middle East with two senators expert in foreign policy: independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona. They’ve been traveling the Middle East and will share with us what they’ve learned, from Cairo, Egypt.
Then, we’ll shift to the national budget battle. Can both parties come together or will the government shut down on March 4? We’ll discuss with Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad of North Dakota.
From national budget to state budgets, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy will join us to discuss the challenges nearly every state’s top politician faces.
And how might oil prices affect the economy? Could the turmoil in the Middle East cause an unexpected double dip recession? We’ll get insight from economist Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics and Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the former director of the Congressional Budget Office.
So is anyone from either party willing to cut there own pay, medical benefits, and pension plans, that is where the larger problem is? Our forefathers never meant for politicians to have a career in Washington DC, nor at a state level to where you actually retire as a politician. They (both parties) need to start practicing what they preach!
