Congressman Andy Biggs Applauds Senate's Decision to Postpone August Recess
Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Senate will postpone its annual August recess by two weeks. Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:
“I am pleased to see our calls for Congress to postpone or cancel August recess becoming reality, and I hope that the House will do the same. The American people entrusted us with the House, Senate, and White House because of the promises we made to them. Those promises included repealing Obamacare, reforming our outdated tax system, balancing the nation’s budget, and making tough decisions on the debt ceiling. We have talked enough about our agenda; now, we must enact these vital policies and assure the American people that we are capable of finishing the work we started.
“I implore House leadership to cancel our August recess and ensure that there is enough time to address the long list of pressing issues on our docket. The American people will not tolerate any more excuses for work left undone or half-done, and I am committed to staying in session as long as it takes to accomplish our goals.”
