Rep. Barney Frank, who is wrapping up his three-decade career in Congress, sat down with National Journal Daily to talk about what he'll do next. Here's a look at the interview:

I was hoping to get it funded. I think it will be next year as part of the deal to do a new form of housing finance to replace Fannie and Freddie.

I think all three within the next few years are doable.
