House GOP Seeks to Prove They Can Govern

"House Republicans want to use their final week in Washington before the August recess to send a signal that they are ready to govern," The Hill reports.

"As the country's attention turns to the fight for control of the House and Senate, Republicans want to show they are capable of handling two of the nation’s toughest issues: the thousands of children crossing the border, and the veterans in need of healthcare."

"If Republicans fail to approve legislation on either issue, their final big achievement over the summer is likely to be more partisan: authorizing a lawsuit against President Obama for his use of executive action to delay ObamaCare's employer mandate."
