    GOP?

    You mean the Dems are all still working while the GOP are on recess?

    Yes, I realize this - but your saying the GOP is off on vacation, yet fail to mention the Dems are right there with them.Seems as if they gave America the finger as well -

    Both parties have had their middle fingers up toward the country for a very long time.

    A replacement is needed.

    The Speaker of the House, the Boehner, sets the vacation schedule. I'm amazed at the people that complain about the President playing a few rounds of golf, but completely ignoring the schedules of our elected representatives.

    I'm saying they did the same thing last year, go on vacation while there is critical work to be done. Correct me if I am wrong, you think House Democrats can pass bills while the House is in recess?

    He can schedule all the vacation's he wants to.

    No one is being forced to take a vacation.

    You're telling us it's all Boehner's fault Democraps are home on a five week vacation?

    They were forced to return to their mansions ?

    They don't need to vote -

    They can continue doing the work though.

    Don't see many Dems on Capitol Hill today...

    Pretty quiet.

    :lmao:

    For the second consecutive year, the Democrat-controlled United States Senate has unanimously rejected President Obama's 2013 budget. The final vote was 99-0, making the the running two-year tally 196-0. This move follows the House of Representatives' 414-0 rebuke of the same fiscal blueprint earlier this year.

    Astonishingly, not a single Senate Democrat has voted in favor of any budget for three years, even as they refuse to offer a plan of their own. Democrats have claimed that three fig leaves mitigate this embarrassing spectacle:
