Back At It, But What Is It?

With the Senate convening this week for the first time in 118th Congress and the House back in town, the U.S. Congress will begin to get down to work.  Traditionally, the interregnum between reconvening in mid-January and actually doing anything meaningful lasts until the President’s State of the Union Address.  This is set for February 7, giving Congress another three weeks or so to posture without the need to prove any sort of purpose.
