How many would realize that there was never any original intent for the US Congress (House and Senate) to sit around making endless new laws all year long, day in and day out.

Article 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution says:
The Congress shall assemble at least once in every Year, and such Meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless they shall by Law appoint a different Day.
