Senate Adjourned Until Monday, Won’t Vote Until Tuesday

Why make senators come to work in Washington on Friday or Monday with the government set to shut down in 11 days?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., announced Thursday that the Senate would recess until Monday and hold no votes that would make senators’ attendance mandatory until Tuesday. Even then, they’re expected to vote on a judicial nominee and then return to a stalled energy efficiency bill.

It seems the Senate really is just waiting for the House to move on its version of a stopgap spending bill. The House is expected to vote Friday on its continuing resolution — which funds the government but not Obamacare. Then the House will break until Wednesday.

But the shutdown countdown will continue over Congress’ long weekend.

    To freedom’s detriment, the false definition of liberty, as the power of centralized government to do specific things, has become widely accepted within self-proclaimed progressive circles.

    In the great pattern of things you receive a B- for effort and hard work. Where you actually misplaced everybody ended up being on the particulars. As they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more true at this point. Having said that, permit me reveal to you just what exactly did deliver the results. Your text is certainly pretty engaging and that is probably why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can notice a jumps in reason you make, I am definitely not convinced of how you seem to connect your ideas which inturn help to make the actual final result. For the moment I will, no doubt subscribe to your position however trust in the future you link your facts better.
