Republicans passed their long awaited tax reform bill this week, leading House Speaker Paul Ryan to declare, "The biggest tax reform in a generation is now the law of the land." Congress then had a quick turnaround to pass funding to keep the government open until mid-January. President Donald Trump signed both pieces of legislation into law before heading down to his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, for the holidays.

This Sunday, we'll look ahead to what 2018 might bring – and what we can learn from the past year– starting with our panel of CBS News correspondents and contributors: we'll be joined by Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett; White House and Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent Margret Brennan; National Security Correspondent David Martin; Justice and Homeland Security Correspondent Jeff Pegues; as well as Ed O'Keefe, Washington Post congressional reporter and CBS News contributor.

Margaret Brennan accompanied Vice President Mike Pence on his surprise trip to Afghanistan this week, where he visited with American troops and talked with the Afghan president about America's role in the country. She sat down for an interview with Pence to talk about security in the region and the ongoing investigation into Trump campaign contacts with Russia. 

With the 2018 election on the horizon, Face the Nation moderator John Dickerson will then be joined by the Washington Post's Dan Balz and Karen Tumulty along with CBS News Elections and Surveys Director Anthony Salvanto for a look at the electoral landscape. Can the Democrats flip the House? Will Republicans be able to keep their slim majority in the Senate? Our guests will break down the trends and give us a sense of what to expect.

We'll also bring you a bit of well-timed advice from author Daniel Pink as he talks about his book, "When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing." Pink will offer his perspective on best time to make important decisions and the science behind taking breaks at work.

All of this and more this Sunday, so be sure to check your local listings and tune into "Face the Nation."
