The Circus on Capitol Hill

While we are not out of the woods on Syria yet, until there is new news coming out of Geneva, the media is back to covering the circus on Capitol Hill. Yes, Congress is finally back in session, refreshed from their long summer recess and ready to rumble. Until their next recess – which may have to be cancelled, with all that work they have to do, shutting down the government and all. Republicans on the House Ways and Means...
