Bob Woodward talked about his new book, The Price of Politics. The book chronicles the inside story of President Obama and Congress' efforts to reach an agreement on raising the debt ceiling, tax policy, and budget cuts. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Mr. Woodward said he concluded in the book that all participants shared blame for pushing the problem off until after the 2012 election, but also that, “The president is the one who has to work his will or find a way to do that. In this case he did not.”

C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo read news headlines at the end of the program. close
