'Accomplish the Mission': GOP Rep Calls for Nixing August Recess
Several Republican legislators are calling Congress to nix the traditional August recess, including Ohio's Warren Davidson.
Davidson (R) said that he ideally would attend several constituent events per day while he is off in his district, but that this year is different.
Davidson said voters are sending a clear message that their congresspeople must get their agenda done before taking time off.
"We're happy to go meet with constituents but I'd rather stay [in Washington] and get things done," Davidson said.
He listed the health care bill, tax reform and an impending debt ceiling limit that must be taken care of in the short term.
Davidson said that as a former infantryman, "you do what you can to accomplish the mission."
In this case, he said that meant cancelling a tradition for the sake of the "mission" that he was elected to work on.
