Republican's Work-Vacation Confusion

Congressional Republicans continue to show up for work in the Capital. House Republicans stage weekday press conferences during their vacation, encouraging Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call a special session of the House.

Contrast their supposed work ethic with Republicans' latest threat, shutting down government altogether. Huh? By showing up during their vaction, I thought these guys wanted to work. Now they want to shut government down? They may take a siesta, just when they're supposed to be in session.

A bi-partisan plan, based on the Gang of 10 proposal, could be the basis for moving forward. Why the tantrum, and why now? Newt must want his way…
