Let me ask a counter question Senator: Where were you on August 30th / 31st? According to the Senate schedule, you (and all the other Senators) have been off work since August 1st. In fact, the House was off doing "Summer District Work" from August 1st through September 2nd. Did your lengthy four week vacation have any effect on the federal response? What were you working on during your time off Senator? While I understand you had a medical issue and I do hope you are recovering well it doesn't excuse your complaining about the President taking time off when you (and the rest of Congress) were doing the exact same thing.
Hypocrisy, thy name is Senator.
