The US Congress going on vacation???
I can hardly believe this.
This is enough to drive home some serious cynicism.
Check this out from The Washington Post:
House cancels October sessions
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) announced plans to cancel sessions scheduled for the week of Oct. 1 now that the House has passed a short-term spending bill, and the Senate is expected to do so next week.
House lawmakers return to Washington Wednesday afternoon, after the Rosh Hashanah holiday and will leave again Friday — meaning they will have met just eight days in September.
CONGRESS JUST CAME OFF A 5 WEEK RECESS, FOLKS.
And now this?
It's also in light of the fact that we are to also be headed toward what has widely been described as a "fiscal cliff" if we don't get a budget passed by the end of the year because automatic budget cuts are already in place?
And we're to somehow think they're doing the "people's work"?
Please write your Congressional representatives today and tell them this is beyond acceptable.
They don't want us to think that they're main goal isn't to derail this president, country be damned?
You might check that 2nd link, below, too, to see a list of what all still needs their attention. But no, they voted themselves a vacation.
