Mitch McConnell Cancels Senate's August Recess

If they can, senators should still be talking about passing something to fix the health care mess that Obamacare left behind.

After at least a dozen Republican senators have been urging the party's leader in the upper chamber to forgo the traditional summer break, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has cancelled all but one week of the traditional August recess.

The Senate will cancel most of its annual August recess, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told senators Tuesday, an election-year move that will force Democrats to shuffle their campaign schedules.

Hurd said moderates have the votes already, but are "engaged in conversations to figure out.is there another path".

Congress rarely finishes work by September 30, the end of the fiscal year, on the dozen individual appropriations bills needed to keep the federal government fully operating.

Alexander said he agrees with McConnell on staying behind to work through the usual August recess, but said he was willing to take on the Democrats on health care.

After all, without a long stretch at home, vulnerable GOP senators now have an excuse to avoid public meetings, town halls and other face-to-face forums where they would be forced to interact directly with their constituents.
