Keeping Senate in session

May 16, 2018

Props to the 16 Republican Senators who are calling on their colleagues to stay in session on Mondays, Fridays, weekends and the month of August, so they can get some long-delayed business done and confirm some of the many Trump appointments that Democrats have been obstructing (Remember when Republicans who opposed Obama’s policies on principle were unpatriotic obstructionists? Now Democrats who block everything Trump does just because he’s Trump are valiant “Resistance” fighters.)

The leaders of the push to stay on the job is Georgia Sen. David Perdue, who said the goals were “to speed up the nominations process and keep the government funded by the end of the year. This is nothing more than trying to make our government work again.” Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst added, “This is the only (job) that you can neglect some of your most basic duties and then take a month-long vacation.” Frankly, given the current mood of the Republican base, I think this might be the best way for some incumbents to avoid being sent on a permanent vacation.

With so many renegade leftist judges trying to run the federal government from the bench, this story should give Republican voters a sobering reminder of why it is so important to keep the Senate and to get Trump’s nominees confirmed as quickly as possible. Of all the campaign promises he made, the one he’s kept best and that will have the longest-lasting positive effect on America is this one.

Even though the “blue wave” is looking more like wishful thinking with each passing day, there is still a chance that Republicans could lose control of at least the House, which makes it all the more urgent to get Trump’s agenda enacted and his nominees approved before fall, when Congress members will be completely distracted by campaigning.

If Republicans need one more great reason to stay in session through August: there are vulnerable Democratic Senators in Trump-supporting states who desperately want to be able to go home and spend August campaigning. Wouldn’t it be more in the GOP’s interests to keep them in Washington, very publicly trying to obstruct the agenda their constituents voted for?

    NO RECESS, WHEN I WORKED FOR A LIVING, WE HAD TO EARN TIME OFF BY BEING ON THE JOB & PRODUCING REAL RESULTS. WHAT HAS THE CONGRESS ACCOMPLISHED THAT WAS PROMISED BY OUR GREAT PREIDENT.??
    NIMIGRSTION REFORM, NO WALL, STONWALLING BY DEMOCRATS & RINO'S LIKE SPEAKER RYAN & SENATE MAJORITY LEADER McCONNELL. I WISH WE COULD GET RID OF ALL OF THEM. I CAN TELL YOU THOM TILLIS &a THE OTHER SENATOE FROM NORTH CAROLINA WILL NOT GET MY VOTE EVER AGAIN. THEY ARE BOTH TRAITORS.
    THIS PRESIDENT HAS ACHIEVED MORE IN THE PAST YEAR BY HIMSELF THAN ANY PRESIDENT EVER WITH CONGRESSIONAL HELP. BOY, WE REALLY DID NOT KNOW HOW CORRUPT THE ELITE IN WASHINGTON WERE, BUT YOU CAN SPRAY PERFUME ALL YOU WANT, BUT EVENTLY THE STINK WILL PREVAIL. THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE SWAMP. THANK GOD FOR PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP & HIS LOVE FOR THE FORGOTTEN PEOPLE OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY WE HAVE ALL BEEN BLESSED TO LIVE IN. WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO FIGHT & SUPPORT HIM IN HIS GOAL TO " MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN".

    Mike! I like your "permanent vacation" idea! sounds like it would, perhaps, take the place of "term limits" and the democrats would not understand it as they would all be out vacationing!

    What an encouraging thing to hear! They are willing to stay and work until they get the job done and all to make sure the government is funded correctly this time. If they are not on our prayer list they need to be. I'll be praying for God's wisdom and grace to come to each one involved for strategic solutions that will last and encourage our president when it comes across his desk.
