The House is back in session today and the Senate returns next week. That leaves five days in December when the full Congress will be in Washington.

NPR's Charlie Mahtesian joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss what that means for all of the unfinished business, including the budget and the farm bill.

Meanwhile, Senator Dianne Feinstein made news over the weekend when she told CNN's Candy Crowley that she believes the U.S. is not safer today than in recent years.
