What do YOU think that Congress should be working on right now?

Illegal immigrant students are ramping up efforts to make sure it's the DREAM act.

Republicans want tax cuts and spending bills on the table before anything else.

With just a few short weeks left in the lame duck session, is immigration reform a priority to you? Tax cuts?  What should the be doing?

    Seems like they've had 7 years to work on creating private sector jobs- IF that were a priority for EITHER side, we wouldn't even need to be discussing the issue at the 23rd hour.

  • OP- cutting spending and generating income- compromising to make semi-palatable decisions.

  • The budget that was due way back in October. That and the tax cut extension are the priorities. Everything else goes into a holding pattern until those two things are finished.

    Good grief, Congress, man up and be responsible.

    ***
    Because Dems wouldn;t pass tax cuts on their own, they had to be rolled into the Budget Reconcillation process, which had a maximum length of, you guessed it, 7 years! Coincidence? I think not!!

    Maybe Dems could, THIS time around, do things the RIGHT way, and make tax cuts permanent as a "stand-alone" bill, and this issue won't need to be rehashed every few years! :o)
