The Lame Duck Congress and the Republican Agenda

Hosted by

Republicans claim a mandate to cut spending, but which programs do this week's voters want sacrificed? The GOP will be in control of the House, and the Senate Minority Leader wants Barack Obama to be a one-term president.  Will the White House be looking for compromise?  Also, stock investors love the Fed's big bond buy, and now that he's been elected to the US Senate, supporters are calling Republican Marco Rubio, "our Cuban Barack Obama."
