So do you know what the Recess is and what the difference between the two is and Why the Executive Branch doesnít get to declare a pro forma session The Recess? I canít imagine you want Dick Chaney to have the power to just decide they are in Recess when he is President in 4 years.
Well, they're up there not doing anything about the deficit and passing no budget. So what's the difference. They can be in session and decide to pass no laws and that'd be just fine with me. They don't have to be making law.
Before you read the ďOutside The LinesĒ report, consider this:
Taping the opposing teamís sideline still isnít banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasnít banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
