Each chamber of Congress will take a 1-week recess during the month of October — The House from Oct. 9-13 and the Senate from Oct. 16-20. This time is allotted for Members of Congress to work and engage with constituents in the states and districts they represent. It is also the perfect time for them to hold public town halls and hear the concerns of their constituents live and in person.
With only a couple months left in this legislative session, there are many urgent and high stakes issues Congress must address. Republican lawmakers are now working on ‘tax reform’ which will provide tax cuts to corporation and wealthy Americans by gutting the budgets for vital programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. The country has also faced a myriad of travesties which must be adequately rectified by swift legislative action, namely the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico & USVI as well as the mass shooting in Las Vegas. And not a week goes by where we don’t learn something new and concerning about the Trump campaign’s relationship with the Russian government. Call you reps today and activate.
