    My immediate response was; Hell no! Make them stay and work on legislation designed to get rid of what Obama imposed on us during the previous administration.

    Since early June, Representative Mark Meadows, the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, has been calling for Congress to cancel its summer recess in order to pass a few key items on the GOP agenda, like health care and tax reform. But lawmakers are reluctant to give up their summer breaks, partly because the recess gives them time to meet with their constituents back in their home states.

    Longknife, our congress should take their summer recess.

    If I have reason to believe that their appointed replacements would be less inferior, I’d advocate our recessed legislatures be encouraged to play with guns and other dangerous toys.


    Greater congressional recess leaves lesser remaining duration of vulnerability for our congress to enact additional mischief. There’s reason to believe that our current president and both houses of congress will continue to be net detrimental to our nation.


    Respectfully, Supposn

    They should go ahead and take the recess to get a break from humiliating themselves and the nation
