Weekly Podcast: Jerry Zremski looks ahead at the week in Washington

Washington is headed for a budget deadline Friday, and The News' Washington Bureau Chief Jerry Zremski is following the action.

Zremski talks this week about the potential for a government shutdown and explains why it's not likely to happen Friday. But in Washington, nothing is certain.

"These days, in the House, you just never know," Zremski notes.

Zremski also explains how Western New York lawmakers stack up on budget pork and why President Obama's reaction to the protests in Wisconsin might give us the first glimpse at his 2012 re-election strategy.
