Do-Little Congress


A five week recess.
A two-week quickie session.
A crush of big tasks.
Few will get done.

Voters frustrated.
Partisan gridlock.
Pre-election paralysis.

Approval ratings—
Single digits.

Since the Republicans took the majority in the House of Representatives in 2010, the goal has been to do nothing.  If they did something, their thinking goes, Obama might get the credit.
