Congress is about to break for the summer

July 30, 2009


Since I’ve worked on Capitol Hill, I have noticed that when I get one day off, Congress gets five, and when I get a week off they have the whole month. Why? What is the purpose of recess? This article explains some of that, and reminds me how important it is to lobby your members of Congress while they’re home over the break. Make them work for it! If you don’t schedule meetings with them, they’ll just be left to lie on the beach or canoe or something.
