July 11, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision to cancel the first two weeks of August recess:

“Senator Majority Leader McConnell is doing the exact right thing by canceling the first two weeks of August recess in response to Democrat obstruction. It’s time for the Democrats’ collective temper tantrum to end and Senator McConnell must continue to ratchet up the pressure so that President Trump’s nominees and agenda have a chance of being considered. Americans for Limited Government is very encouraged by this latest announcement by the Majority Leader and urge him to take every necessary step to end the Democrats’ abuse of Senate rules.”
