House Speaker Paul Ryan told Fox News host Tucker Carlson in March that Congress would only work for 8 days in April and vacation for the rest of the month.
Peek is right. Congress shouldn’t be allowed to take their vacation until they get something done. They already failed on healthcare reform, embarrassing the party in the process, and now they are stalling on tax reform. In some ways, it is hard to fault President Donald Trump for wanting to work with the Democrats since his own party seems so inept at following the president.
What do you think about this? Should Congress not be allowed to take a vacation until they have passed tax reform? Let us know in the comments below.
