President Bush Criticizes Congress

President Bush says Congress has ``little to show'' for its work in 2007.
   The president is scolding lawmakers for what he considers meager accomplishments.
   Today is the day Congress returns for a shortened holiday season session.
   In the final weeks of the year Bush is urging lawmakers to prevent ``harmful'' tax increases and to ``responsibly'' fund the government. He says if Congress sends him an ``irresponsible''
spending bill he'll veto it.
   Partisan feelings have been brewing on several fronts between Democrats who control Congress and Bush. One of the Democrats' goals is to pass a temporary change to the Alternative Minimum Tax to prevent 20 million taxpayers from getting hit with tax increases averaging $2,000.
