U.S. SENATE WORKING ON A HOLIDAY? EGADS!
posted by Michael Chihak
Last December's lame duck session of Congress was hailed as the most productive period in many a year for our elected officials. It came despite much sniveling and whining, largely by Republicans, that the session was cutting into their holiday break.
Now comes word that it might happen again, this time for the sake of keeping the U.S. government afloat and avoiding a global fiscal meltdown.
The AP reported today that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid plans to talk to members of the Democratic rank and file about possibly canceling a scheduled July 4 break so work can continue on negotiations for raising the debt ceiling and cutting federal spending.
Get ready for more sniveling and whining.
