Dan Pfeiffer, White House Communications Director, Sits Down For HuffPost Live Q&A (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON -- The Huffington Post sat down with White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer Tuesday for a live video discussion on the major topics of the day.

The issues covered ranged from the ongoing debate over federal student loan interest rates, to the recent defeat of the so-called Buffett rule, to the budget battles continually resurfacing in Congress. The subtext of it all was the nation's economy, where early signs of recovery this year have given way to renewed fears that growth will slow.
