The Next Two Months In Congress

Mike Allen and Jim Vandehei of Politico lay out the major issues that Congress will face in the coming months. They quote the words of Steny Hoyer who said “In 33 years, we’ve never come back from summer break with the number of very critical, important issues that we’re going to confront over the next 90 to 120 days.”

“In the next two months, the most unpopular institution in America will decide the fates of a president’s power a military strike, defense contracts, the budget, health-care implementation, the Federal Reserve chairmanship, illegal immigrants, and all of us who would be hit by a debt default.”
