Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has delayed the August recess for at least two weeks so the upper chamber can deal with pending issues like the budget, debt ceiling, and of course health care. A number of senators have called for this action and the House Freedom Caucus has called on Paul Ryan to do the same thing in the House of Representatives.
Republicans have a lot of campaign promises to keep and the American people are getting impatient. Of course, the Democrats in the Senate share much of the blame because of their constant tactics to delay even the most mundane actions in the Senate.
