White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on Monday outlined four steps the administration wants Congress to take action on before the new year, following the November terrorist attacks in Paris. The steps included passing legislation to improve the visa waiver program, fully funding the administration’s aviation security budget, confirming Adam Szubin as undersecretary of the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence and passing legislation barring individuals on the no-fly list from buying guns. “Capitol Hill has been a source of politically motivated posturing, but few, if any, tangible improvements to our national security,” Earnest said. “That’s wrong, that’s dangerous.”
