1. To try to prevent recess appointments.

 

It's all a game to them. Nobody in Congress is homeless or starving.

5. Back to Civics class for you...

1) Appointments are approved (or not) by the SENATE

2) to block recess appointments you actually have to STAY in session (nominally).

7. 1) Eventually

 

2) They're in recess from today until Monday. Nominally.

Our President can get more done in two days than Congress has done over the past four years.

6. If we reach the debt ceiling

Can the first thing we do is stop Congress' paychecks and benefits payments and divert those funds to people who actually deserve them?

8. Never mind:

House To Reconvene On Sunday Night

The U.S. House of Representatives will reconvene on Sunday at 6:30 pm ET, Bloomberg News reports, presumably to work on a possible deal to avert the so-called fiscal cliff.

Clearly, Boehner has issues.
