I am sure many of you who have read or watched FoxNews today have seen that as Democrats voted to take a 5-week vacation, Gus and his Republican colleagues took to the House floor to demand that Speaker Pelosi bring Congress back in session to debate and VOTE on a comprehensive plan to lower gas prices, invest in renewable resources, and break our dependence on foreign oil. 

Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) was twittering and qik'ing the "People's House" all day today and the videos and posts are worth a read.  In addition, the folks at Redstate were getting live updates from the floor

The Politico also has a great play-by-play

Gus voted against adjourning Congress for a 5-week vacation because he believes you only get a vacation when you accomplish something.  Gus will continue to supoprt an "All of the Above" approach to energy.  Domestic oil, renewable energy, long term strategy, conservation, and much more.
