Catherine Rampell of the Washington Post and Sudeep Reddy of Politico join us to discuss the week's business and economics news. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen gave a speech today and talked about financial regulation. Her message to the Trump administration: Don’t mess with regulation. Meanwhile, Yellen’s potential replacement, Gary Cohn, gave an interview to the Financial Times, saying he’s willing to try to make tax reform a bipartisan effort. So can the GOP get tax reform right? Plus, we give an update on the debt ceiling and if it will be raised.
