Congratulations, Washington! You achieved absolutely nothing this week. Ali Velshi asks Harvard University economist Ken Rogoff, the financial crisis expert, if America is ready for an economic resurgence after the fiscal cliff.
Plus, jobs… they are coming back, but just not strongly enough to allow the country to regain its economic footing. That's especially true as headwinds grow from Europe and Asia.
Also, is it over for Grover? Ali talks to two Republican congressman, Tom Cole, the Deputy whip from Oklahoma, and Ted Yoho, the newly elected Republican from Florida, about why they are backing away from Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge.
And, what happens if we do raise taxes on the rich? We’ve done it before and the country has accomplished much more than survival. Watch a steel cage match on tax hikes between Stephen Moore of the WSJ and David Cay Johnston, the Pulitzer prize winning author.
CNN's Your Money with Ali Velshi airs this Saturday at 1:00p ET and Sunday at 3:00p ET.
