Hey, if they can do it for a new Pope and keep all those cardinals locked up until white smoke comes from the window, then we sure as hell should be able to do it to all our bird brains. Just bring in some samiches and give bathroom breaks til the job's done.

There are multiple reasons members of Congress might go home, but given the gravity of the problem, and the years that Congress has already delayed action, we believe nothing is more important than members staying in Washington and doing their jobs. The fundraisers can wait. Our nation's ticking debt bomb can't.
