Congress is Taking a Vacation

a href=”http://blogs.federaltimes.com/federal-times-blog/2011/04/07/moran-congress-may-take-2-week-easter-break-during-shutdown/”>Jim Moran (D-VA) says that if the government shuts down (or not), Congress is going to go on a two week vacation. Barack Obama has decided to go off on a mini-vacation already.In other words, Moran wants you to think it’ll be two weeks before the government opens back up. Not really. The Speaker and Senate Majority Leader or the President himself can call Congress back to Washington to deal with a matter.But, if Moran is right, why not stick around and try to not shut down the government, Jim? You’d rather your vacation?What about the troops?
