Monday's HOT MIC
Be still my heart. Republicans in Congress are considering the cancellation of their August recess.
As of today, the 115th Congress has been in session exactly 89 days. So far, there have been 169 days in 2017. This is actually a better percentage of days worked by Congress than in recent Congresses.
Of course, just because Congress isn't in session, that doesn't mean that members aren't "working," although these are people who count golf junkets to Scotland and free trips to Jamaica for an "anti-terrorism" conference as work.
But as far as conducting the people's business, there appears to be a deficient work ethic among members of both parties.
So refusing to take the entire month of August off is a step in the right direction.
