Senator Ted Cruz appeared on Sean Hannity’s show Monday evening, and urged GOP leadership to forego the scheduled August recess. Instead of taking the upcoming break, Senator Cruz urged Congress to get the job of repealing and replacing Obamacare done.
FOX News reports:
“It’s crazy that we would be taking a recess,” Cruz told Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday night. “There are a bunch of us, myself included, that have been urging leadership back from January [to] not take any recesses.
“Let’s work every day, let’s work weekends, let’s work until we get the job done,” Cruz added. “We have a job to do and a short window of time, and so we ought to stop taking recesses, stop taking time off and just keep going until we get it done.”

Senator Cruz is not accepting any excuses from leadership, and he shouldn’t.
It’s more than admirable that Cruz is calling for members of Congress to work nonstop in an effort to repeal the monstrosity known as Obamacare. After all, our elected officials were sent to D.C. to work, not take time off.
With deadlines fast approaching and little accomplished, other members should join in with Cruz and encourage leadership to forget the recess and work on repeal until the job is done.
Thank you, Senator.
