Another Government Shutdown Already? Congress Heads Out on Vacation, Happy With Itself

Both the House of Representatives and the Senate are celebrating their unbelievable success in the debt ceiling showdown by treating themselves to a well-deserved vacation.  Both are not going to be working much of the rest of the month of October.

It’s only fair.  After all, they really worked overtime to reach this deal which effectively pushed the crisis back until February and solved nothing.

With hard work like that being performed throughout the first half of October, it’s only fair that they get some R & R.
