What the lame-duck Congress needs to take on

Now that it has dropped the ball on the Paycheck Fairness Act, failing to end wage discrimination, this lame-duck Congress has another chance. It must extend benefits for unemployed workers. No Congress has ever left workers hanging in midstream, unable to keep their families going, keep food on the table, roof overhead and the lights and furnace on at home. Certainly this Congress would not be so cruel as to do so in this terribly tough economy and just as the holidays are approaching.

It also has a chance to do something else that will have a major impact. Passing the DREAM Act will allow more people to achieve economic security for their families with a pathway to citizenship through a college education or military service.
