Congress is Going on Vacation

In less than 24 hours Congress will be going on a long vacation. Don't you wish you could go on extended holiday without first getting your job done? Nancy Pelosi and Company are refusing to allow an up/down vote on drilling. They are worried because there are a number of Democrats willing to vote for drilling because their constituents want it.

This afternoon Representative Mike Pence said he has asked President Bush to call a special session of Congress, under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution:
He may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respsect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper.
President Bush should call them out, call them back and force them to vote on drilling.

A new scheme in the Senate offers to do a little drilling off the coasts, but mainly gets rid of $84 billion of tax money on more big gov. It's supposed to be a "compromise", meaning the Dems get 95% of what they want, Reps get 5%. Not a word about drilling in ANWR. Where is Caligula's horse when we need him most?
