It’s the economy … the White House turned its focus to jobs this week and Sunday I’ll talk with the President’s top economics advisor, Larry Summers, about how much more economic pain the American people will endure and how long it will take to replace millions of lost jobs.

Is the President’s latest jobs plan enough? Or will mounting deficits hurt the economy more?

As the GOP looks ahead to mid-term races, I’ll ask House Minority Whip Eric Cantor about what the sluggish economy means for Republican contenders Summers, Cantor, only on 'This Week.'

Plus, our powerhouse Roundtable: George Will, Former Bush Counselor Ed Gillespie, Arianna Huffington, John Podesta of the Center for American Progress and April Ryan, Chief Washington Correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks.

We’ll look at the President’s historic Nobel speech. Talk of war while accepting the Peace Prize brought Republican accolades, but will his Afghan policy cost the President liberal support? And as liberal hopes for a public option fade, what will the final health care bill look like and will the Senate deliver it by Christmas. That, and all the week’s politics, only on 'This Week.'

See you Sunday.
