Congress to Boehner: Cancel recess
by Carol Thompson
Over three dozen members of Congress have signed a letter urging speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner to prevent the House from adjourning “before we address our nation’s most pressing concerns.”
By November 12, the House will only have worked eight days out of the past 100, according to Rep. Paul Tonko. “Americans deserve better from their elected officials,” the letter, dated today, states.
The Congressman added that the number of urgent matters is growing by the day, including the student loan refinancing act. If the House adjourns, it will do so for seven weeks.
