While Democrats who control the Senate's schedule have been planning to go on vacation next week, Sen. Sessions has been urging that the chamber remain in session to begin work on a budget plan and a debt ceiling package. He spoke on the Senate floor today to reiterate his call for Majority Leader Reid to hold a vote to go on vacation. (Last month, Sessions sent a letter, signed by 46 Republicans, urging the Senate to remain in town to carry out its fundamental obligation of passing a budget plan.)

Sessions said that "we owe the people we serve an open, honest debate over the debt limit," but pointed out that this cannot occur if the Senate adjourns for a week.
