Fresh from 5-week vacation, Congress expected to focus on scoring points for election

There are 1 comment on the story from Sep 10, 2012, titled Fresh from 5-week vacation, Congress expected to focus on scoring points for election. In it, reports that:

Fresh off a five-week vacation, lawmakers will return to Washington today for a truncated pre-election session in which Congress will do what it often does best: punt problems to the future.

Lawmakers face a slew of deadlines and the prospect of a debilitating fiscal cliff in January, yet they are expected to take a pass on the big issues of taxes and spending cuts. Their focus seems to be on the bare minimum, preventing a government shutdown when the budget year ends Sept. 30.
