America's Inheritance: Where to Begin on the Big Issues?

Thursday, December 13, 2012 8:00 AM - 8:00 AM EST

Newseum, Knight Broadcast Studio - Third Floor | 555 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W. | Washington, DC 20001

Extensive challenges face President Obama and the nation--in his second term. The economy, budget, energy, health care, workforce, and national security are among the areas where the administration and Congress will be confronted with problems. With Democrats in control of the White House and Senate, and Republicans in a majority in the House, bipartisan agreement will be needed for any legislation to be signed into law. Will the gridlock that characterized the past two years continue, or will the election spur leaders in both parties to work together? This National Journal for a policy summit that explored a 360-degree perspective on these topics from the view of the Administration, Congress and other key Washington players. The event looked at questions such as: What role does the current environment in Washington play in facilitating action? What are the underlying trends and opinions driving decision-making in the White House and Congress? Is the challenge of finding common ground on these issues too great, and if so, what is at stake if neither side is willing to make concessions? EVENT ARCHIVE VIDEO:
