(NEWS CENTER) -- When Congress returns to work following the Easter recess, members will face a new round of budget battles. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) goes In The Arena with Pat Callaghan to talk about her priorities when getting the nation's fiscal house in order.

Sen. Collins talks about Republican proposals to privatize Medicare and make significant cuts in Medicaid, while cutting the top tax rate for the wealthiest Americans. She also discusses whether the federal government should take steps to blunt the impact of rising gas and oil prices, policies that can encourage job creation, and the new 'terror alert' system.
