    Missing in Action: Dems Have No Plans To Reconvene House of Representatives Until May

    Missing in Action: Dems Have No Plans To Reconvene House of Representatives Until May

    Steny Hoyer says ‘Absent an Emergency’ House will stay home for weeks. “The move extends a prolonged recess that began in March 12, and it abandons a plan to reconvene on April 20.”

    House Majority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) informed House Democrats Monday that they would not reconvene until May, barring some sort of emergency.

    Do Democrats think we’re not in an emergency?

    Cortney O’Brien writes at Townhall:

    Dem Leader Explains They’re Not Meeting Before May ‘Absent an Emergency’

    Does a pandemic that has killed thousands of people around the globe, shuttered the American economy and resulted in a nearly 20 percent unemployment rate qualify as an “emergency?” Not in the mind of Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. As he explained to the press on Monday, the House of Representatives would not be meeting again before May 4, “absent an emergency.” They had initially planned to reconvene on April 20.

    Susan Ferrechio of the Washington Examiner has more:

    Democrats meet by phone after House postpones reconvening until May 4

    House lawmakers won’t return to the Capitol until May 4 or later due to the threat of the coronavirus Democratic leaders told rank-and-file members on Monday.

    The move extends a prolonged recess that began in March 12, and it abandons a plan to reconvene on April 20.

    “Members are further advised if the House is required to take action on critical legislation related to the coronavirus response or other legislative priorities, members will be given sufficient notice to return to Washington D.C.,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, told Democrats in a letter.

    The reaction on Twitter was swift:

    This is reminiscent of a scene in the 1985 film The Sure Thing. The two main characters are traveling to California during spring break and find themselves caught without money, lodging or transportation during a rainstorm:

    Unfortunately with the House now not reconvening until some time in May, now is not the time to breathe a sigh of relief, because if there is anything Democrats do well and in abundance, it is scheme

    The only thing we’d need the House for is more spending bills, and the D’rats would just sabotage those because they don’t throw enough money at endangered fish or some such nonsense.

    Typical liberal tactic when things get how you nowhere to be found.

    No emergency? Bastards!

    How many of their constituents (federal, state, and local government employees) have been laid off or furloughed? None? Well, that explains their cavalier attitude doesn’t it?

    It’s way past time to boil the tar and pluck the chickens.
