A proposal by three Republican senators to avoid a “lame-duck looting session” after the November election.
DeMint, Graham and Johnson want their House GOP counterparts to act before the August recess to fund the government through early next year. That would avoid the threat of a government shutdown before Sept. 30 and leave it in the hands of a new Congress and, perhaps, a new president.
What a concept! A proposal that the present Congress do its job now, rather than wait.
