CONGRESS IS IN RECESS, BUT HOW WOULD WE KNOW?

Congress is in recess. But how would we know if it is or not? They don't do much. The recent sit-in by the Democrats in the House of Representatives was attacked by many in the GOP because it interfered with the business of that non-august branch of the legislature. What business? Trying to repeal Obamacare for over the 100th time? Waiting for the Supreme Court to repeal Obama's effort to treat immigrants with some decency and respect? Blocking the Senate's efforts to pass an immigration bill? Passing a Zika bill that doesn't provide enough money to effectively combat the virus that has already caused birth defects in the U.S.?  
Acting as stooges for the NRA? Congress is in recess but how would we know?
