The end of summer is fast approaching. I know some believe summer is officially over after Labor or when schools reconvene but for those involved in the machinations of Washington, summer is over. Congress will adjourn for it August “work period” and the President gave up doing anything to help the country months and months ago.
The list of government unfinished business-some of it urgent- is long and complicated. No budget was passed, no appropriation bills will be pass, the current tax code more or less expires at the end of the year and automatic budget reductions will also be implemented in January. It is a feckless state of affairs.
