Canceling recess is a logical response to Dem obstructionists who don’t play well with others, forcing them to conduct the nation’s business or miss campaign time…
President Trump met with Republicans from the least productive body of American politics, the United States Senate, on Tuesday, with the idea of cancelling the August recess coming up as a likely prospect, for some very good reasons.
Most significantly, there are 24 Democrat incumbents facing reelection this cycle and only 9 Republicans. That means that keeping them in DC would reduce the amount of time they could spend campaigning at home, making them more vulnerable to challengers who are on the ground in their home states.
President Trump tweeted his position on the recess on Sunday, writing, “The Senate should get funding done before the August break, or NOT GO HOME. Wall and Border Security should be included. Also waiting for approval of almost 300 nominations, worst in history. Democrats are doing everything possible to obstruct, all they know how to do. STAY!”
Those are a “Mission Impossible” comprehensive list of conditions, given the inability of the Senate to do much of anything and only 75 days or so until August 1st, the 300 nominations alone is beyond reach. But progress could be made and with it coming at the expense of the obstructionist Democrats, what’s not to like about the idea?
Trump spent a portion of the meeting reminding Senators of the first year accomplishments of his administration, despite being shackled by the establishment globalist COUP attempt, which is a foundation for his plan to bring GOP voters to the polls this November. He’s also pushing for their support to keep the House in GOP hands and prevent Democrats from making good on their threats to fabricate grounds and begin impeachment of the President.
He also plans to stress to voters the benefits of the Republican tax law, elimination of industry and well killing Obama regulations and the desperately needed improvements made in the federal judiciary.
After the meeting, Senator David Perdue (R-GA) said that their leadership is considering cancelling the recess, that “All things are on the table.” Earlier Tuesday he stated that Mitch McConnell was “very supportive” of the idea as well as the working of longer weeks through the end of the year.
Senators Tillis and Shelby voiced their support of the schedule changes, with Shelby noting that President Trump has vowed to never again sign a massive omnibus spending bill. Shelby, Chairman of the Senate Appropriations committee, said, “We’ve been talking to the leader” about the challenges of finishing all twelve spending measures on time. “We might stay to work to clear the calendar.”
As for the impact remaining in DC through August would have on midterm campaigns, Shelby noted that it “might not be realistic for the Democrats but it would be realistic for having a lot more seats.”
The Senate should get funding done before the August break, or NOT GO HOME. Wall and Border Security should be included. Also waiting for approval of almost 300 nominations, worst in history. Democrats are doing everything possible to obstruct, all they know how to do. STAY!
