This Sunday: Democrats are hoping to start debate in the Senate next week on sweeping legislation that would overhaul the nation's financial regulatory system. Can Democrats and Republicans reach an agreement and avoid the partisan fighting that divided the health care debate? What parts of the bill are up for discussion? And what issues are non-negotiable? We'll get answers in an exclusive debate: the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Banking Committee, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) & Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL).
Then, as Goldman Sachs executives prepare to testify before Congress next week, is there any proof the fraud charges filed against the firm were politically motivated? Will the administration's plan for financial reform really prevent future bailouts and provide adequate consumer protection? What is the most likely outcome of the regulatory fight on Capitol Hill? And how will President Obama's popularity and the current political climate in Washington impact the 2010 midterm elections? Our roundtable weighs in: The New York Times' David Brooks, CNBC's Erin Burnett, NPR's Michele Norris, and Newsweek's Evan Thomas.
