Senate Leader Harry Reid announced today that the Senate will be in session next week. Leader Reid said, “with liberty comes responsibility,” and that the Senate has to do its job and produce a budget.
Leader Reid Says The Senate Has A Responsibility To Do Their Job. “Mr. President, it is often said that with liberty comes responsibility,” he said. “We should take that responsibility seriously. I’m confident we do. That’s why the Senate will reconvene on Tuesday, the day after the Fourth. We’ll do that because we have work to do. (Manu Raju, “Senate Cancels July 4 Recess,” Politico, 6/30/11)
