After taking almost the entire month of August off, House leadership has penciled in just nine workdays for September.To be fair, September has just 30 days, and they're already spending the first two of those days on vacation. If you subtract the 8 weekend days, that leaves just 20 workdays left in the month. So it's not like they're spending all of their time screwing around doing nothing—they're only taking off 11 of the first 20 workdays after their vacation.
It makes sense, if you think about it, because everybody needs a transition between vacation and really diving back into work, right? Plus, it's not like they're doing anything while on the job anyway, so it probably doesn't matter anyway.
