"We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over," he said in a letter to Pelosi.

I dont know the details of any trip to Brussels or Egypt or their merits, or if those are even real. I know Scalise brought up Brussels randomly this morning. By the latest reports she was due to leave into the warzone of Afghanistan at 3:30 PM today, that trip was kept secret for security reasons and will obviously now have to be cancelled...I wouldnt be calling a trip to a warzone a vacation or a PR stunt. Obviously flying commercial into Afghanistan is a large security risk.
