House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and House Minority Leader John Boehner join anchor Jake Tapper for a “This Week” exclusive. Congress holds almost a dozen oil spill hearings and releases clean-up money, but can Congress reform the oil industry? And the House leaders will give their take on Tuesday’s election results. Will a tough environment for incumbents help Republicans take back the house? Hoyer, Boehner, in a “This Week” exclusive.
Then, he built one of the world’s most successful technology companies that changed our lives and now Bill Gates wants to change the way Americans consume their energy. As the environmental catastrophe continues to unfold, Jake Tapper sits down with Microsoft Chairman and co-founder Bill Gates for a “This Week” exclusive. As Gates and other top executives present their plan for revolutionizing energy innovation to Congress and the President, he’ll share his vision for a clean energy future and explain why he thinks government must help lead the way.

Plus our roundtable: George Will, Democratic political strategist Donna Brazile, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich and former Republican Congressman Tom Davis look at Tuesday’s big night for women in politics. The President says he’s angry about the Gulf disaster and wants to know “whose ass to kick” and now he’s invited top BP officials to the White House.
