Maddow shocked Dems won't use this simple trick that gives them ‘more power’

On Friday, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow suggested that Democrats should employ a simple maneuver to make greater use of their tenuous Senate majority before a closely contested midterm: cancel the August recess. This would, she noted, make it easier for Democrats to do things like confirm more judges, something that they have already made clear is a priority.

"They don't work in August," said Maddow. "What are they, French? I kid you not. The Senate's official website says the reason they take all of August off is in part — look — so senators can, 'catch up on their summer reading.' For that noble reason, they take off all of August every year. It's on the calendar this way. In this Congress, they will take off all of August this year and next year. Take those months off the calendar. That gets the Democrats from 24 months in theory down to 23 months because McConnell stole their first month from them, then drop down two more months to 21 because of the August catching up on reading time."
