ABC News' "This Week with Christiane Amanpour" and the Miller Center at the University of Virginia are partnering for "The Great American Debates," a series of debates on key issues of the 2012 presidential campaign. The debates, moderated by "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour, will take place before a live studio audience at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. and air on Sundays as special episodes of "This Week."
The first debate this Sunday, Dec. 18 will focus on the topic "There is Too Much Government in My Life" – debating the role and scope of government on issues such as entitlements, taxes, and regulations. Participants for the first debate include Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee, and columnist George Will versus Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., senior Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich.
