DETROIT (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Congress returns to work after breaking for the Thanksgiving holiday.

And with a month left in this session, time's running out on several big issues. Most notably: the expiring Bush Tax Cuts, a government spending bill, and the proposed repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Indiana Congressman Mike Pence spoke before the Detroit Economic Club Monday afternoon in Birmingham, Michigan.

Pence discussed his support of a flat tax, extending the Bush Tax Cuts to everyone, and his opposition to bailouts to General Motors and Chrysler.

Pence is often mentioned as a Presidential Candidate in 2012.

But Pence tells Indiana’s NewsCenter he's closer to deciding if he will run.

Congressman Pence says, “My family and I have been humbled by that, we're determined to take the next few months to pray about it, to seek the counsel of people we respect and admire, and make the decision sometime after the first of the year.”

Pence will start his sixth term in congress when the new session begins in January.
