What should be Congress' top priority in 2014?
Improving the economy and reducing unemployment?
Protecting Social Security and Medicare?
Ensuring veterans' benefits?
Securing our border?
Fixing our broken immigration system?
Reforming our tax system?
IMO, addressing the economy and unemployment should be the number one priority. Next, protecting our borders. Then, veterans' benefits, Social Security and Medicare. Then, reforming our tax system. After that, fixing our broken immigration system. Other? Yes, reduce government spending and reduce the size of government (that'll probably never happen). Begin to restore our infrastructure.
Congress should do the American people and the world a favor and ban itself in 2014.This would be a good place to start.
Unfortunately, unlike England where Iif the government is refused confidence or supply, it must be dissolved - in the USA there is no heave-ho mechanism.
ptosis,that's interesting,I wasn't aware of that; something new to explore.Thanks
If things are so bad they have to cut military benefits (which they did Christmas week when nobody was paying attention) they darned sure ought to find a way to remove tax breaks for the top 10 percent income brackets and raise tobacco taxes in states that are under the national average since those states refuse to do it for themselves (my home state of Georgia included.) Georgia will lay off teachers but won't raise their tobacco tax by the $1 per package that would just bring it up to the national average!
First priority: Cutting all corporate ties! Banning lobbyists.
Second priority: Create a law that Corporations are NOT people and bind the Supreme Court to accept it.
Third priority: Create a law that all parties must obey election laws with every voting done within the party. No more cheating, ignoring votes and changing votes.
Fourth priority: Fire the current congress and hold a new election for all representatives and senators.
Not likely to happen. So, ignore Congress and start a new Continental Congress to form a new government learning from the mistakes of the first attempt at a Free country. Make certain to eliminate the private central bank!

Through our working years we all paid for Social Security and Medicare, so why are they considered entitlements when in fact we contributed our own money into the system?
