Healthcare, illegal immigration, and Fast and Furious are going to be at the top of the agenda for what will be an historic week in Washington.

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on President Barack Obama’s healthcare law and on Arizona’s immigration law, two huge campaign issues, Politico reported.

Congress will take up student loan rates and federal highway funding. Obama wants to keep loan rates from doubling and is urging Congress to fund federal highway programs. Laws covering both will expire June 30, according to Politico.

Also, the House is scheduled to to vote on whether Attorney General Eric Holder should be held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents in the “Fast and Furious” case.

Appearing on Fox News, U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa predicted that Republicans and Democrats would vote to find Holder in contempt of Congress.

Issa’s committee is seeking documents related to Operation Fast and Furious, which allowed guns illegally purchased in the U.S. to be smuggled across the border to track them to Mexican drug cartels.

“This has the potential to be a hugely consequential week for President Obama and the Democrats who run Washington,” Michael Steel, spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, told Politico. “If Senate Democrats are able to reach agreements on student loans and highways, that will obviously eliminate two of the president’s talking points about congressional inaction.”
