Center on Congress
I felt a brief surge of hope about Congress a few weeks ago. I was returning from Easter recess and Capitol Hill was filled with talk about immigration reform, a minimum-wage bill, a spending bill to keep the government operating and maybe even funding for transportation infrastructure. But, as I said, it was brief.
That’s because the talk turned out to be just that. Immigration reform appears to be headed nowhere, as do tax reform and budgetary discipline. The minimum-wage increase died in the Senate.
