Surprise! This is the least productive Congress ever. (VIDEO)

The 113th Congress left Friday for a five-week recess.  Through the first eight months of 2013, the House has passed just 22 bills that have been sent to President Obama. That's the smallest number of passed bills since people began keeping track of these things.

All that and more in this "In Play" segment on the least productive Congress ever.
