Sunday show preview: Lawmakers resume debt fight on television

Senate leaders will take a break Sunday from squabbling over the debt ceiling in Congress to resume the squabbling on national television.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Democratic Policy Committee Chairman Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) face off on CBS' "Face the Nation" and CNN's "State of the Union," while "Fox News Sunday" hosts House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.).

White House adviser David Plouffe offers the president's take on ABC's "This Week" and NBC's "Meet the Press." Gene Sperling, the director of the National Economic Council, promises more doom and gloom if lawmakers can't reach a deal on both Fox and CNN. 

Fox also has Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), while CNN scores conservative Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who voted against House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) bill on Friday. 

Finally, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) appears on ABC and Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) on NBC.
