Our GOP congressmen decided it wasn't right to go home without voting on an energy bill, so when Nancy Pelosi turned off the microphones, the cameras and the lights, they stayed in the House, calling for Congress to address the issue of gas prices.
Yes, it was a political stunt, but it's the first time in a long time that our Republican reps have shown a spine and insisted upon what the public wants.
If you believe Congress should be working instead of taking the next five weeks off, you can sign a petition telling them to 'don't go.'
Remember, they work for us and it's irresponsible of them to refuse to hold a vote simply because they think the vote will not go as they want. This is not democracy, nor is it a representative republic and they need to be shown that we expect better from our employees.
