Does the American public realize or care that the Congress is taking a five-week vacation with the crisis on the border spiraling out of control? Congress has officially mastered the manipulation of any and all policy issues for political gain alone. In short, neither side wants a deal on the border or a myriad of other pressing issues. The right can blame the left and vice versa. Congress has evolved from a place of constructive compromise to a game of blame and stonewalling. Have a nice vacation.
