Democrat House speaker Nancy Pelosi has put the House in recess until Monday night, spelling more days of government shutdown and another chance for a break for the beleaguered legislator.
Pelosi has now infamously cancelled the State of the Union address, leading President Donald Trump to declare her move a black mark in the pages of American history.
Republican congressman Lee Zeldin of New York is not having it.
Unbelievable. @SpeakerPelosi just canceled session for Friday & is putting the House in recess from tomorrow morning until Monday evening. Stop leaving DC! Sit down, negotiate & compromise. Get in a room & let's do our jobs. Stop sending Members home so much. pic.twitter.com/6j880obfTr
