'Congress’s first priority should be job creation and restoring opportunity through work for the millions who remain unemployed. Yet Congress has made an uphill climb for the long-term unemployed even steeper.  Before they leave for summer recess, our elected representatives need to undo the unnecessary and damaging mess they’ve created and repeal the sequester.
