Good news for all Americans concerned about spending, debt, and the federal government stomping on our liberties. Due to the winter storm that crippled Washington DC this weekend, the House of Representatives will not hold votes this week.
From The Hill:
The House will be out of session this week due to “the severity of the winter storm in the D.C. area,” according to an email sent to lawmakers on Sunday.
The House was already scheduled for a short week, with Democratic lawmakers attending their annual legislative retreat in Baltimore from Wednesday to Friday.
More than 10,000 flights were cancelled to and from the East Coast due to the blizzard this weekend, making air travel back to the nation’s capital a perilous prospect.
Votes in the House will recommence on Feb. 1.
This means for one week, the House will not be voting to increase spending, increase the debt, or trample on our liberties.
Stay tuned, though, as this will likely lead to the House making up for lost time beginning February 1.
