QOTD: "Writing for the panel, Chief Judge David Sentelle of the D.C. Circuit said the NLRB appointments of Sharon Block, Terence Flynn and Richard Griffin, made without Senate consideration in January 2012, were "invalid from their inception" because the U.S. Senate had not gone into recess. The Senate, at the time, was meeting in "pro forma" sessions every three business days.

The "inescapable conclusion," Sentelle said, was that "the Framers intended something specific by the term 'the Recess,' and that it was something different than a generic break in proceedings."

Sentelle and his colleagues, judges Karen LeCraft Henderson and Thomas Griffith, rejected several interpretations of "the recess," including whether the phrase refers to "some substantial passage of time, such as a ten- or twenty-day break." Defining "the recess" as an adjournment of more than three days, the appeals court said, "lacks any constitutional basis."

"We will not do violence to the Constitution by ignoring the Framers’ choice of words," Sentelle wrote." --Blog of Legal Times

Found this little gem in a dusty corner.
"We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. I say after eight years of [Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt's] Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started... And an enormous debt to boot!"
- Henry Morgenthau, Secretary of the Treasury under FDR, speaking to the House Committee on Ways and Means, May 9, 1939.
