Lame Duck Congress


The threat of a lame duck session of Congress is real. Legislation such as cap-and-trade, card check, union pension bailouts, and enormous tax hikes have repeatedly been rejected by citizens, yet there are many in Washington who want to sneak these horrible policies through after the voters have spoken.

AFP is leading the charge against the lame duck session, and has launched a one-stop shop for articles, quotes, and clips detailing what bills Congress might try to sneak through.
