Having served one term in the House of Representatives, Congresswoman Dina Titus joins us to talk about her run in a much safer seat. We talk about her decision to change to CD1 and create a Democratic primary, the budget problems in Washington, the future of welfare programs and what Titus hopes to accomplish in a second term in Washington.
The last few months in Congress have witnessed some of the toughest partisan warfare in recent memory. The debt ceiling, the final, last-minute compromise on budget cutting and the future of Medicare and even Social Security are all being tested for use in the 2012 election. Freshman Congressman Joe Heck joins us to discuss the big issues and give us his take on what's going to happen with the super-committee that has to find big budget cuts 12 months before an election.
Congressman Joe Heck has found himself in trouble in recent days after saying that Social Security was a "pyramid scheme." So where does Heck stand on Social Security and other issues? Congressman Heck is in Las Vegas this week, but has declined to join us on the program. So we're looking at his voting record to figure out where he stands on the issues.
