Congress should cancel the August recess

June 7, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to cancel the August recess and get to work:

“It’s time for Congress to get to work, and the first step is cancelling the August vacation. At a time when President Trump’s agenda is being stalled in Congress based on the calendar, it is time for Speaker Paul Ryan to cancel Congress’ paid vacation. What’s more, the House should be in session on Mondays and Fridays until they get all of the appropriations bills done.”
