The dog days of Congress

Paul Jacob writes in Townhall Let's count our blessings. Congress is out of session. The men and women of Congress did their damage, sure enough, but at least during these hot, sticky days of August we're safe. They're on recess. Washington is now left with 35,000 lonely lobbyists.

Good point. Texas had the wisdom to only allow its legislature to meet once every two years, and for a specific length of time. The governor can call a special session, but he must specify what matters they are to cover in the special session. We should do that for the federal legislative branch as well.
