Harrisonburg, Va. (WHSV) -- With Congress back from vacation, that means back to business in Washington. There are key items they will be focusing in on this time around.

Political analyst Dr. Bob Roberts said the main things to watch out for are the debt ceiling, Obamacare and immigration reform.

All things which Republicans and Democrats are divided on in Congress.

"The bottom line is very little is going to pass. The most we probably could hope to get through, hopefully is a debt ceiling increase, but beyond that. There doesn't seem to be enough votes on any of those issues," said Dr. Roberts.

He said being that this is an election year, it should be especially interesting with one third of the U.S. Senators up for re-election.
