This Sunday: What impact does the government shutdown and the ongoing debate over the debt ceiling have on the world's economy? David talks exclusively with the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde.
And: How close is Washington to reaching an agreement on the debt ceiling and the government shutdown? And why can't either side seem to agree on anything? We'll get the latest from two top lawmakers in their party: Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Assistant Democratic Leader Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL).
Next: The government shutdown has had a big impact on members of the armed services. We'll discuss the fallout with former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta who was Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton during the last government shutdown in 1995.
Then: New poll numbers show just how unhappy Americans are with their elected officials - have we reached a new low? Sunday, we'll break down the politics of it all with our roundtable: Co-anchor and managing editor of the PBS Newshour, Judy Woodruff; Washington Post Columnist Kathleen Parker; former Rep. Harold Ford (D-TN); and NBC News Chief White House Correspondent and Political Director Chuck Todd.
