BRIDGEWATER -- After a five week recess, congress is back with lots on its agenda. Topping the list is Syria.

Some Americans worry that other topics on congress' agenda will be left at the bottom of the barrel.

"The same polarization of American politics that makes it very difficult for the president to get a resolution to use force in Syria makes it very difficult to do immigration. It makes it very difficult to do the budget," said Jim Josefson, an Associate professor at Bridgewater College.

Another key issue that congress will tackle this time around is whether to raise the debt ceiling.
