Reid may push policies through in a lame duck session

I’ve written a couple of posts about Sen. Harry Reid’s appearance at NetRoots Nation this past weekend. I stumbled across this video last night of Reid discussing issues Congress may tackle in a lame duck session. For those of you not familiar with that term, it’s a Congress that meets after an election and before the successor Congress meets.

Here is the video:

While I’m not opposed to immigration reform (though I do oppose the DREAM Act) or repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell,” I don’t know that I agree with passing these bills on the heels of a new Congress, and possibly a new party in power. If you can’t do it during a legitmate time, you shouldn’t do it.
