Coming up on 'This Week' … Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.)

Christiane Amanpour heads into the field for an exclusive day-in-the-life report with Rep. Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, whose controversial proposals to revamp Medicare and Medicaid have provoked waves of anger at town halls in his home district and across the country this past week. Ryan, a hero to some and a villain to others, tours his home district with Amanpour and engages in a lively give-and-take with her about the cuts he is proposing -- and the visceral anger it seems to have provoked, even among his own constituents.

On the roundtable: ABC News' George Will, Arianna Huffington of The Huffington Post, former Reagan budget director David Stockman, and Chrystia Freeland of Thomson-Reuters will debate the Ryan plan and what the country needs to do to get back on firm financial footing.

Plus, as the Arab spring turns stormy with another bloody weekend in Syria and a Pew Report that indicates many Egyptians resent America, "This Week" brings the very latest from the region and Amanpour examines the growing debate over whether the Obama Administration has indeed lost its way in the Middle East.
