Growing the middle class & the war on poverty

Today marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon B. Johnson declaring the "war on poverty." What progress do we have to show today? We have two parties with strong views and ideas about how to grow the middle class. But whose will work?

At 6:30pm ET, we debate who is doing more to lift the economy with Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) and Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) with hosts S.E. Cupp and Stephanie Cutter.

We want you to weigh in: Do you think raising the minimum wage would reduce poverty?

In the Crossfire: All eyes on the House

With the Senate halting talks, all eyes are on the lower chamber of Congress to produce a deal to avoid default.

Speaker of the House John Boehner said this morning, “I have made clear for months and months that the idea of default is wrong and we shouldn’t get anywhere close to it.”

The challenge is clear: will Boehner get 217 Republican votes to pass a deal to avoid default?

Tonight, two members of the House, Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) join hosts Stephanie Cutter and Newt Gingrich to debate the potential deal.

Join the conversation and tell us what you would ask Edwards and King by tweeting with #Crossfire.

We want you to weigh in. If Congress funds the government for 3 months, do you think there will be another shutdown in January? Reply Yes or No now below, by replying to our tweet or by commenting on our Facebook post.
