THE PRAIRIE EDITOR: Congress Should Not Be Allowed To Recess Until It Passes Major Legislation

This will be one of my shortest op eds ever on this website.

Congress is now back in session. It has passed a number of
minor bills. The senate has confirmed Neal Gorsuch to the
U.S. supreme court.

Most of the responsibility for confirmations to sub-cabinet
positions and lower federal court nominations is due to the
slower-than-usual selections for these posts by the Trump

Major legislation on Obamacare repeal and new health
insurance reform, tax reform, tax cuts, spending reform and
other important issues has not taken place. The Republicans
control both houses of Congress and the executive branch.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell should not permit the usual summer recess
this year until at least some of these major legislative issues
are resolved and sent to President Trump for his signature.

No more delays and excuses.


UPDATE (July 11, 2017)
The U.S. senate has postponed its summer recess.
