Do you get to pick your own topic? Do you do parli or congressional?

I would look at Iran, military spending cuts, capital gains tax (or any number of variations of tax reform), Keystone pipeline, the piss poor state of US infrastructure, high speed rail, the future of US healthcare legislation, campaign finance reform and super PACs, Citizens United, NDAA and the controversial indefinite detention provisions, the widespread use of "non-lethal" weapons by police such as tasers and mace, student loan reform, European financial crisis...

I think that should give you a good start?
