Democrats are meeting today to hash out preliminary steps towards finalizing a budget before the recess. Republicans are organizing opposition to a spending plan that many in their ranks call irresponsible. Todd Zwillich from Capitol News Connection joins us to talk about the public opinion war being waged on Capitol Hill this week and what the final budget might look like.
"Even if they get this budget passed, that doesn't mean we have a cap and trade system. It doesn't mean we have a health care overhaul. It just means they have the running room to make the policy."
