This Sunday: What impact did the threat of a near U.S. default have on the nation's economy? Congress averted the crisis for now but will history repeat itself? We'll talk exclusively with Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.
And: The bruising budget battles have left both sides of the aisle politically damaged. After averting a crisis, can Congress come together to avoid the next showdown and work on other big issues like immigration reform? We'll talk with two key Senators in both parties: Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York and Republican Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.
Next: Robert Shiller, predictor of the dot-com bust and housing bubble, and Nobel Prize-winning economist weighs in on the prospects of solving the current fiscal stalemate.
Then: Congressional gridlock has reached all-time highs while approval ratings dip to records lows. With the budget crises now in the rearview mirror, what are the sticking points on the big agenda items moving forward? Plus, it's been another tough week for the roll out of Obamacare. How big of a problem are the glitches? Our roundtable breaks it all down: NY Times Columnist David Brooks; Washington Post Columnist E.J. Dionne; host of CNBC's "Closing Bell," Maria Bartiromo; and NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell. In addition, Chuck Todd will have First Read Sunday with a look ahead to the week in politics.
