Congress approaches summer break

Listen

Hour 1

Guests: Robert Costa, Jay Newton-Small

President Obama has called the 113th Congress the least productive in modern history. With its summer recess and the midterm elections around the corner, there is little time left for passing laws. We examine the Congress’s achievements, its legislative misses, what still needs tackling before the break, and who has the power. Joining us are ROBERT COSTA, National Political Reporter at the Washington Post, and JAY NEWTON-SMALL, TIME’s Congressional Correspondent.
