GOP Work Ethic on Display as August Recess Canceled for Congress

Mitch McConnell and the congressional republicans have had enough of the democrat’s ridiculous stalling and obstruction.

The democrats and their leftist cohorts have been focused on one thing and one thing only:  Ending Donald Trump’s presidency as early as possible.  It is an obsession that has completely consumed them, as they shirk their American duty to govern in favor of perpetuating ridiculous and unrealistic Russian conspiracy theories involving Trump, Putin, Trump’s children, cabinet members, and anyone else who they believe that their cronies in the mainstream media will report on.

Meanwhile, President Trump’s ambitious agenda has suffered huge setbacks due to the unwillingness of congressional democrats to recognize the wants and needs of their constituents.  Now, in an effort to both achieve greatness, and possibly shame some of these lackadaisical leftists, the republican leadership will cancel the traditional August recess for congress.

“’In order to provide more time to complete action on important legislative items and process nominees that have been stalled by a lack of cooperation from our friends across the aisle, the Senate will delay the start of the August recess until the third week of August,’ McConnell said in July 11 statement, titled ‘McConnell Statement on August Recess, Democrats’ Obstruction.’

“The extra time will allow the Senate to vote on the annual defense bill and to approve White House nominees, the announcement said:

“‘Once the Senate completes its work on health care reform, we will turn to other important issues including the National Defense Authorization Act and the backlog of critical nominations that have been mindlessly stalled by Democrats.’

“McConnell’s decision follows a request by 10 GOP Senators to cancel the recess.

“’The message is very clear … we’ve got some very important issues to get resolved,’ Perdue said in a Tuesday press conference before McConnell’s announcement. ‘This is a positive, constructive effort to get results for the people back home,’ said Perdue, who organized the push to cancel the recess.

“The Senate’s calendar shows just 31 working days before the government’s fiscal year ends on October 1.”

The work-ethic chasm that exists between the aisles in our legislative branch has never been quite as apparent as it is now.

With democrats tirelessly accusing Trump and his cabinet of Moscow-centric malfeasance, while simultaneously refusing to budge on any of the myriad of Trump policies that the American people are depending on, the party of Clinton has once again rolled over to reveal their soft underbelly.  The democratic party is fractured, and likely mortally wounded.  With selfish and childish maneuvers such as their congressional foot-dragging as their lasting legacy, their final days cannot come soon enough for We The People.
