June 2007
Hill;6/20/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 74, p26
The author reflects on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's call to senators that they will either work during the weekend or cancel their July 4 plans to pass the energy and immigration legislation. He claims that White House hopefuls are more interested with politics than the government. And, those in the presidential hunt such as Senators John McCain and Sam Brownback would be resentful, with the congressional schedule packed. But, they can't help skipping a vote on very important legislation.
