Congress Is Taking Another Vacation?

Does everyone in Washington take weeks and weeks of vacation? As if they are working so hard--

Congress Is Taking Another Vacation? Seriously? - The Daily Beast: "Lawmakers are departing town for a five-week break, leaving critical legislation behind. John Avlon on why we need to fire the jokers who’d rather play games than fix problems. Five full weeks of summer vacation have just begun for members of Congress. That’s after nine full weeks off so far this year—and the House gets six more away before the election. All that time off, a sweet health-care plan, and quasi-fame as well. Is this a good gig or what? But most folks only take time off when they get their job done—and that definitely isn’t the case for the 112th Congress."
