Lights, Cameras, Microphones Off

While the Democrats rushed home for a month long recess, Republicans stuck around to talk energy...despite the lights and microphones being turned off. It's too bad the Democrats didn't think it worthwhile to work with us to pass some much needed energy legislation. The President can and should call the House back immediately so we can debate and vote on the legislation that has been offered to deal with rising energy costs. Pelosi may not agree with the solution's being proposed, but the American people at least deserve a vote.
