Don't be surprised if things like card check, cap and trade and a host of other distasteful, progressive agenda items resurface after November 2nd. The crew on Capitol Hell don't give a damn what Americans think about these things, they will treat them like ObamaCare and shove them right down our throats.
Here's what John Fund has to say on the subject:

The Obama-Pelosi Lame Duck Strategy
By JOHN FUND
Democratic House members are so worried about the fall elections they're leaving Washington on July 30, a full week earlier than normal—and they won't return until mid-September. Members gulped when National Journal's Charlie Cook, the Beltway's leading political handicapper, predicted last month "the House is gone," meaning a GOP takeover. He thinks Democrats will hold the Senate, but with a significantly reduced majority.
The rush to recess gives Democrats little time to pass any major laws. That's why there have been signs in recent weeks that party leaders are planning an ambitious, lame-duck session to muscle through bills in December they don't want to defend before November. Retiring or defeated members of Congress would then be able to vote for sweeping legislation without any fear of voter retaliation.
