Members of Congress are heading back to their districts for a summer recess with little to stand on as unemployment numbers remain high. Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich looks at the week's news agenda, along with Chrystia Freeland, global editor-in-chief of Reuters.

They also look at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit with President Obama; the future of RNC Chairman Michael Steele; the Obama administration's lawsuit against the Arizona immigration law; and the succession plan to replace the late Senator Robert Byrd.
