Hoyer: Democrats Ready to Work for Americans While GOP Leaves for Recess

“Our Republican colleagues are leaving without getting their work done. I say ‘their’ work done. Without getting ‘our’ work done. The work of the American people. Comprehensive jobs bills, middle-class tax cuts have not been extended, farmers are left on their own to face the worst drought in decades… a Farm bill reported out of the Republican committee lays unconsidered by this Floor. Reported out of their committee from their majority and they haven't brought it to the Floor while farmers remain in trouble.
