FRONTLINE

Cliffhanger Preview

Preview: Season 31 Episode 5 | 31s

FRONTLINE investigates the inside history of how Washington has failed to solve the country’s problems of debt and deficit. Drawing on interviews with key players in Congress and the White House, FRONTLINE shows how a clash of politics and personalities has taken the nation’s economy to the edge of the "fiscal cliff," and now to a second round of standoffs over the debt ceiling and sequestration.
