Response to StarfishSaver (Reply #12)

17. I'll never understand why people don't get the difference between a "recess" and a "vacation"...

Maybe some legislators look at a recess as a vacation, but most spend the time for it's intended use - go back to their districts and meet with or speak to their constituents or as you point out to prepare for hearings.

I got an email just yesterday, he's holding an online town hall (times are different these days) on Wednesday afternoon to discuss upcoming legislation, including the "The American Rescue Plan" (relief bill).

Very few Representatives/Senators consider it a vacation, but unfortunately some do.
