After more than 30 Democrats flocked to Puerto Rico over the weekend for a fancy retreat, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives will take an 11-day “break” from Congress.
Yes, that’s right America the people that claim they care so much about the 800,000 federal workers and contractors are now taking 11 more days off until January 28th. They just received a massive break from Christmas as well.
But don’t you worry liberal supporters, they truly care about the government shutdown.
On Tuesday, Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., took to Twitter to slam his progressive colleagues and urged them to stay in town until the partial government shutdown is over.
“This is nuts! The House will be out of session from the 17th to 28th. I say let’s keep ALL Members of Congress in DC to negotiate w each other and (President Trump) until there is deal. Lock us all in a room here…no phones…no pay…and this will end very quickly,” Zeldin wrote.

President Donald Trump leveled Democrats for vacationing in Puerto Rico over the weekend.
The president has been on Twitter the past few days railing against Democrats for traveling to a retreat in Puerto Rico while he’s sitting at the White House waiting to negotiate a deal.
“I’ve been waiting all weekend. Democrats must get to work now. Border must be secured!” Trump wrote on Monday.
“Nancy and Cryin’ Chuck can end the Shutdown in 15 minutes. At this point it has become their, and the Democrats, fault!” he wrote in a second tweet.
In a third tweet, Trump slammed Democrats for skipping town during the shutdown: “Dems in Puerto Rico as Shutdown hits day 24.”
