Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Cheat Sheet

George Wenschhof

Senator John McCain (R-Az.), appears on CBS "Face The Nation" to talk about his recent trip to Syria and his meeting with some rebel commanders.

In addition, to the sabber rattling over the turmoil in Syria, expect more discussion on what defines national security and off limits reporting from the press as the Department of Justice investigation on leaks is panned.

Also, on "Face The Nation", New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson and Washington Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward will delve into Thursday's meeting between Attorney General Eric Holder and members of the media. Who attended and who didn't? Can the current rift between the press and the Justice Department be mended?

Will immigration reform pass congress this year and if so, how effective will it be, is another topic sure to be discussed Sunday morning.

A key member of the immigration “Gang of 8” and Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will appear on NBC "Meet The Press".

As investigators continue to dig into the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups the House Oversight Committee is planning a new hearing looking into how the tax collecting agency spent money on conferences. CNN "State of The Union" will talk to the Chairman of that committee, Rep. Darrall Issa (R-CA). 

The rollout of the Affordable Care Act is underway and is under continued scrutiny.  Expect discussion to center on the cost and effectiveness, especially after HHS announced a delay in implememnting health care choices for small businesses.
