Dried Out School Marm Cancels Recess

By “School Marm”, I mean Mitch McConnell, and by “recess”, I mean that he is delaying the Senate recess in an attempt to pass some variant of TrumpCare.

I understand where he is coming from, Republican politicians are getting savaged at their public meetings by their constituents, and one of the things that goes on when the Congress is on recess is meetings with the public.

McConnell is clearly trying to minimize opportunities for members of his caucus to interact with the public before they vote on the bill, because being screamed at by the mother of a profoundly disabled child who would lose coverage tends to make politicians skittish.

If this weren’t literally a matter of life and death, I would be amused at the Republican discomfort at their current situation.
