White House senior adviser David Plouffe gets top billing on four of the Sunday morning talk shows this week. He'll be on ABC's "This Week," CNN's "State of the Union," "Fox News Sunday" and NBC's "Meet the Press."
Reaction and, quite likely, some criticism of the budget negotiations will dominate the rest of Sunday's talk.
Reps. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) and Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) will square off on "This Week." Pence on Friday night declined to comment on the budget deal GOP leaders struck with President Obama, saying he needed time to review the agreement. Pence has been leading the charge to ban taxpayer funds from going to Planned Parenthood. His rider was not included in the bipartisan pact though there will be a straight up-and-down vote this week in the Senate on the controversial issue.
Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and House Republican Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling (Texas) will be on CNN's "State of the Union," and Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) and Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) sit down for CBS' "Face the Nation."
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) follows Plouffe on "Fox News Sunday," while House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will be on "Meet the Press."
