In this week's Washington Report, David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times, talks to Kerry Nolan about the cracks appearing in Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad's regime and what it could mean for the region. Then Sanger discusses the political reaction to the shooting in Colorado and looks ahead to to the new year, when Bush-era tax cuts expire at the same time as some pretty sweeping spending cuts go into effect.
