The fact that Congress is not working to help the Main Street economy recover and to ensure the security of the American middle class should be emphasized vigorously and continuously.  Across the jump, a few actions that Congress can take to help restore a viable and strong middle class are discussed.
President Barack Obama, in his weekly address, provides a "to-do list" for Congress. Enactment of President Obama's "to-do list" would be the beginning of the restoration of economic security on Main Street and for middle- and working-class Americans.

- Assist returning Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans obtain jobs by establish a Veterans Job Corps.
