Prez and Dems plan vacations for government shutdown UPDATED w/video

Time off, been working so hard...

Lacking a deal in the meantime, the government shuts down at midnight on Friday night.

Shortly thereafter the President (here, here, here) and the Democrats plan to be on vacation.

Hard-working Rep Moran (D VA), soon to be on vacation

No, it wouldn’t do to stay in Washington DC and try to reach an accommodation with the Republicans to either avoid a shutdown or make sure it’s a very short one.

As reported in the Federal Times, House member Jim Moran (D VA) told a meeting of federal employees,

If you are a federal employee, I think you need to start conserving whatever financial resources you have. Be very careful about large purchases. Make sure you have enough money at least for the mortgage, or the monthly rent and car payment and so on. Because this could be extended.

We would hope and expect that if there is a shutdown that it will only last through the weekend. We of course will be on the job throughout the weekend trying to reach a resolution. An extension might last until the middle of next week. But Congress has decided that it’s going to take an Easter break, the district work period they call it. But for two weeks, Congress won’t be in session. So if there isn’t any resolution, the furlough could well extend for three or four weeks.

One woman threw her hands up in the air in frustration, and another man angrily asked Moran, “Why don’t you stay on the job, then?”

Refuse to pay the troops during the shutdown, then go on vacation.

The optics for the Democrats are going to be very, very bad.

Update: Video of the town hall meeting where Moran actually tells a veteran (at about 4:10) to sit down and shut up or leave.

This is the respect that our Dem reps give to the people who employ them.

  1. Couldn’t agree more Ron. Now I’m reading that despite the promises that there would absolutely definately not be US troops on the ground in Libya, that there may have to be US troops on the ground in Libya. So the Liberals are saying, go risk your life and limb for the country, because you have been allowed to be volunteered by others, but we will stop your meager pay in order to make a statement against those evil Republicans, who passed a bill to keep you funded through the rest of the year. Yes, the message is going to look very bad for the Liberals, and it’s about damn time.
