Congress, lame, duck, Republicans, Democrats, liberal, agendaIf Republicans regain control of Congress in the elections, as many expect, the lame-duck session will afford Democrats one more opportunity to turn their dreams into law.

The issues include Bush-era tax cuts and the military’s “don’t ask don’t tell” policy.
