We are only a few months away from mid-term elections. The balance of power in Congress is at stake.
These elections can decide the fate of our government. And the fate of Trump’s MAGA agenda.
All eyes are on the Senate. Republicans hold a tight lead. But in November all that can change. Democrats have promised to undo much of the progress Trump has made over the last year. That includes overturning his historic tax cuts. Plus, members of Congress promise to impeach him.
Much is at stake. The Democrats will do everything in their power to claw back into the swamp. They will lie, cheat, and steal to make it happen. We know this because they did all those things and more to steal the 2016 election.
But Republicans in Congress have a brilliant move. One that will put Democrats in a tight position.
From Fox News:
But the biggest question buzzing around Capitol Hill now is whether the Senate will cancel or shorten that recess – and meet anyway.
President Trump initiated this year’s fretting over a canceled recess with a tweet:
“The Senate should get funding done before the August break, or NOT GO HOME. Wall and Border Security should be included. Also waiting for approval of almost 300 nominations, worst in history. Democrats are doing everything possible to obstruct, all they know how to do. STAY!”

A group of GOP senators then launched an effort to stay through the summer’s hottest stretch…
The field is tilted toward the Republicans. It’s a freak of political nature. But neither party has faced an electoral map this challenging since 1938.
So, it’s a great strategy for Republicans to tether Democrats to Washington and rob them of valuable campaign time at home. Meantime, GOP challengers can barnstorm those same states.
You see, pressure has been mounting for Congress to cancel their recess and pass some major bills this summer. After a half of a year of obstruction, the pressure is on. Senate Democrats can’t afford to delay much longer. Either they have to work in Congress or face the backlash.
No matter what Democrats do, they’re in big trouble. If they cancel their recess and work with Republicans, they lose valuable time on the campaign trail. Many Democrats are facing tough elections. Numerous states up for grabs were won by Trump in 2016. Those senators will have a tough time convincing Trump supporters to give them a chance. They need all the time they can get to bamboozle voters.
But what if they don’t cancel the recess? They’ll have to explain to America why their vacation was more important than getting things done in D.C. That’s a pretty bad situation to be in, come election time.
Of course, Trump is putting the most pressure on them. With his massive influence and following online, he can slam democrats all day for their obstruction. Democrats will have a hard time explaining why they let the American people down. And why their recess is more important.
Either way, they don’t have a chance.
