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.
