The Do-Nothing-Quickly Congress

Although most members of Congress left Washington weeks ago to campaign, they’re technically not in recess. To prevent President Obama from making recess appointments, a rotating cast of lawmakers is gaveling in twice a week for lightning-quick sessions. The House has spent most of its roughly three-minute meetings on a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. The Senate’s doing even less. Its shortest session, on Oct. 9, lasted just 25 seconds.
