Harry Reid Warns Senate They’ll Be Spending Christmas In Washington
Congress’s Christmas Break look like it’s going to be either very short or non-existent:
WASHINGTON — The Senate will likely work overtime this holiday season to approve a fiscal cliff package and Sandy relief funding before the end of the year, Majority Leader Harry Reid acknowledged Monday.
“It appears the Senate will be coming back the day after Christmas,” Reid said on the Senate floor.
With Christmas nearing, lawmakers find themselves in a rush to finish an ambitious legislative agenda, including a deal to avert the fiscal cliff and a disaster relief package for states ravaged by superstorm Sandy.
Congress putting things off till the last minute. Where have I seen this before?
