As the fiscal cliff nears, Bloomberg’s Director of Congressional Analysis Loren Duggan and Bloomberg News reporter Richard Rubin talk with Peter Cook about the state of the deficit talks and the outlines of a deal. One of DC’s top lobbyists, Financial Services Forum President and CEO Rob Nichols, discusses President Obama’s relationship with Wall Street bankers and the chances for working together over the next four years. And “Capitol Gains” profiles Charles Blahous, the lone Republican trustee overseeing Medicare and Social Security’s finances.
Bloomberg Government’s Capitol Gains airs Sunday mornings at 11:30AM EST on W*USA9 and on Bloomberg Television at 12:00PM EST and 5:00PM EST.
