    After four weeks of vacation, Congress is finally back on the job.

    Oh....excuse me

    That wasn't a "recess"......Congress had all those important meetings that prevented President Obama from making recess appointments

    Either they were in session and the recess appointments were invalid. Or they were in recess and the bills they passed were invalid.
    Both cannot be true.

    No man is safe when the legislature is in session.

    Nice that the Clowns got a 4 week vacation at taxpayers expense.

    Lets see if Reid can get his fingers out of his ass and bring up some of those bills he's been sitting on for oh so long.

    Oh wiat. I forgot. They were passed by the Rep controlled House. Never mind.

    Election year congresses are even more useless than usual. They might as well be lying around in hammocks.

    The Republican House cut the number of days they would be working.

    They shouldn't be meeting nearly as often as they do.

    Cut their pay in half and let them meet half time like Texas does.
