“Oh my gosh, it’s going to be long,” said Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois. “It’s going to be really crazy. I won’t be shocked if we’re here during the week we were going to be off. It’s going to be an intense couple of months between the [continuing resolution] and the debt limit.”Yes, oh my gosh! Oh my gosh, House Republicans might cancel the vacation that they had scheduled two weeks from now, even though they just went on a five week vacation. What dedication! They are willing to give up a vacation for no other reason than that they have thus far proved unable to pass any sort of legislation that would prevent a government shutdown on Sept. 30.
And not only that, they might even have "an intense couple of months" thereafter. What a commendable display of dedication to their jobs. Seriously, is this not what you think of when you think of selfless public servants? We're so very lucky to have them.
