One of the demands of the U.S. citizens for Congres was to cancel their August recess until the finish of the Obamacare repeal vote.
The good news is, they listened what the American people had to say.
Mitch McConnel R-KY – the Senate Majority Leader issued a statement in which he said that he is delaying the August recess for at least the next two weeks in order to allow Republicans to push for the replacement of Obamacare for an additional time.
Here is his statement:
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.
From The Examiner:
Typically Congress begins has the entire month off but the Congressmen that are on the side of the American people have delayed it until the healthcare impasse is resolved and until the dozens of political appointees awaiting confirmations are confirmed. The power of the American people really shows in this decision, as it is quite rare for Congress to delay a recess.
Senator Mike Rounds, R-S.D. issued a statement in which he said:
Most of us are new, so we are very close to what people back home are telling us. And they expect results up here.
This maybe comes as a natural reaction after last Monday when President Trump wrote on his Twitter account:
I cannot imagine that Congress would dare to leave Washington without a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully approved and ready to go!
