This Sunday: As President Obama takes his economic message on the road we'll talk with Jack Lew, the man behind the numbers, in his first "Meet the Press" interview since being named Treasury Secretary.
Then: A high-stakes vote in the House on a measure to curb the NSA's ability to collect data on American citizens is narrowly defeated. But the debate over privacy and security has mired Capitol Hill since the leak of classified documents about intelligence gathering programs at the NSA. We'll get the latest from House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI).
Also Sunday: President Obama hit the road this week to try and return focus on the economy, but will his speeches grease the political gridlock in Washington?
