How to use recess in a sentence?

  1. Frank Peirce of Nashville:

  4. Jon Stewart:

    All cowards. All of them, now they say,' Well, this will get done. Maybe after we get back from our summer recess, maybe during the lame duck' — because they're on Senate time. Do you understand you live around here ? Senate time is ridiculous. These mother *** ers live to 200. They're tortoises. They live forever and they never lose their jobs and they never lose their benefits and they never lose all those things. Well, they're not on Senate time. They're on human time. Cancer time.

  5. Fine Gael Brendan Griffin:
