Our guests this week:
• Lawrence Summers, director, National Economic Council
• Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas
• Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md.
In the face of growing opposition to his economic recovery plan, President Obama calls for "action that's swift, bold and wise." The White House began the week with their attention focused on the economic stimulus. However, things got knocked off track when former Senator Tom Daschle's tax problems forced him to withdraw his nomination to be secretary of Health and Human Services.
Will the Obama administration be able to regain their footing and work with the Congress to craft an economic stimulus package that can reverse the current financial crisis? We'll ask President Obama's chief economic adviser, Lawrence Summers — live on "FOX News Sunday."
Then, with the Senate set to pass the economic stimulus plan early this week, the stage is set for what could be a brutal battle in the conference committee. To give us a preview of how the House and Senate might work together we’ll be joined by Democratic Congressman Chris Van Hollen, assistant to the Speaker of the House and chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and Republican Senator John Cornyn, head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
Plus, tax problems continue to hound the President's Cabinet nominees causing Tom Daschle to withdraw his nomination this week. After a campaign built on a "new era of responsibility" does the Obama presidency have an ethics issue? We'll ask our Sunday panel: Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard, Mara Liasson of National Public Radio, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer, and Juan Williams of National Public Radio.
So check your local listings and we’ll see you on the next "FOX News Sunday."
