House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced today that they may be forced to cancel recess to prevent the government from shutting down. Shock! Horror!
The House was originally scheduled to have the week of Sept. 23 off, but Cantor said lawmakers might have to return to Washington that week and maybe the following weekend to prevent a government shutdown.
“Members are advised that pending ongoing discussions on the continuing resolution, the House may be in session during the week of Sept. 23 and possibly into the weekend,” Cantor said on the House floor.
This may be just the kick in the ass members of Congress need to compel them to pass a continuing resolution. Because they wouldn’t want to miss out on recess, would they?
