It's a Feature Not a Bug

The Democrats are at it again — disrupting people’s hopes and dreams just to plunge us deeper into debt. You might have already read this bit:

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) promised his children for months that he would spend one uninterrupted August week with them in Hawaii.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had other plans for Chaffetz and the rest of the House. On Tuesday, Chaffetz will complete nearly 24 hours of round-trip air travel just to vote no on a $26 billion state aid bill unexpectedly tossed onto the schedule in the middle of the quiet August recess.

But dig a little deeper down and you get this:

Many members would prefer face time with their constituents ahead of the November midterms, and some are making no secret about their displeasure.

Except for incumbent Democrats, who would rather not see a repeat of last August’s Town Hall meetings. Any chance to escape their constituents — which might be what Pelosi had in mind all along.
