    If you're an adult, you probably don't get a summer vacation unless you are either a teacher or a member of Congress. This summer, Congress took a seven-week summer break and came back to a pile of unfinished work like the Zika virus issue and annual budgets and they better work fast. Congress is also taking off the month of October which means just a few more weeks to cram it all in. Source: Fox News
