The House has moved ahead despite the lack of top-line fiscal numbers.The Senate has spent most of 2019 voting on Trump’s judicial and executive branch nominees.McConnell and the Senate GOP caucus were able to score political points in 2018 by pledging to work through much of the August recess in an election year.But this time around, when there is no election on the calendar and the Senate is doing little legislating, McConnell is likely to run into stiff opposition from some Republican colleagues if he tries to reduce the recess.Sen.
