Congress Celebrates the 4th By Doing Nothing
Happy 4th of July – almost. In a little bit less than 10 hours from now, the 233rd anniversary of the United States of America will begin. This year, Independence Day falls on a Saturday, but the Congress of the United States of America has been observing the significance of July 4th all week, by shutting down and doing nothing.
That’s what the American Revolution was all about, after all: No vacation without representatives.
