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:
NJD What are you leaving unfinished?
FRANK Three big ones. One, I would make substantial military cuts.... Second in a very specific way I’m pleased that we got the Low-Income Housing Trust Fund established. 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. Three, a bill that protects lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people against job discrimination. We’ve made progress on all three of those. I think all three within the next few years are doable.
