Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi tells a joint session of Congress that Iraqi elections will take place despite major challenges. Congress gives a multi-billion-dollar tax break to middle-income families — but critics warn poor people will still feel the pinch. NPR's Tony Cox discusses these headlines with columnist James Ragland of The Dallas Morning News and columnist Betty Baye with The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky.
