Feinstein Begs Senate To Extend Paid Vacation Dianne Wants Washington To Stay Closed Longer
the patriot journal ^ | May 1, 2020 | Adam Casalino

Despite the ongoing crisis, our U.S. Senators left D.C. to go home. They haven’t been able to get much accomplished for the American people remotely.

But are they still getting paid? You better believe it. With some states reopening, McConnell had the reasonable plan to reopen the Senate. But one long-term Democrat is demanding to extend her paid vacation.

From The Hill:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is urging Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to cancel his plan to bring the Senate back to Washington, D.C., on Monday, saying the House did the “right thing” by deciding not to return next week.

You gotta be kidding me. Even as Americans struggle to cope with this crisis, Sen. Feinstein (a Democrat from CA) is demanding McConnell cancel his plan to reopen the Senate.

She said the House did the “right thing” by shutting down and sending everyone on a vacation.

Really, Dianne? Americans have been forced to stay home. Many of them aren’t getting paid. Hourly workers have been slammed by this situation.

Meanwhile, D.C. fat cats get to go home, while still being paid? How is that right?

Many states are reopening. Some governors are bucking the media’s demands and forging a path to save their economies while keeping people safe.

Yet this senator wants to stay home? I guess that Netflix list isn’t going to watch itself!

Why can’t senators do something to get the economy back on track? They were willing to spend trillions to deal with the shutdowns.

Why can’t they now make plans to get the country working again?

Very much to the advantage of incumbents running for the Senate (and all House seats). Of course, selected GOP Senate seats will be targeted hard.

Fine. Recess the Senate for real. 6 weeks ought to do it.

Then let the recess appointments begin.

Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members,

AND a Majority of each shall constitute a QUORUM to do Business; but a SMALLER NUMBER may adjourn from day to day, and MAY BE AUTHORIZED TO COMPEL THE ATTENDANCE OF ABSENT MEMBERS, in such Manner, and under such Penalties as each House may provide.

Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, EXPEL a Member.

“She’s a Chinese agent Jim.”

I don’t think it was a coincidence, or ignorance on her part, that her driver for 20 years was a Chinese spy. Call me crazy, but ...

Feinstein just wants to stop President Trump from getting his judges confirmed.

Since it's something that the House can't do, the House is free to adjourn.

But not the Senate, so Feinstein, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, complains.

I like them staying out of Washington, D. C.

Only bad things happen when they are there.

Can we stop the lock-down for everyone else, and convince
them that they still need to stay in their home state?

The longer Congress is not in session, the safer we are.

I have no problem with that as long as they are not getting paid. No work — no pay.
