    saw this today. Some memebers of congress Leave Washington on Thursday, and arrive on Tuesday....Try telling your boss that is what you'll be doing for your work schedule.


    WTF!?

    "By the time the gavel comes down on the 109th Congress on Friday, members will have worked a total of 103 days. That's seven days fewer than the infamous "Do-Nothing Congress" of 1948."

    Read where Hoyer is going to change this to a 5 day work week, then a Republican comes back and criticizes the Dems for taking them away from their families and the dems are not a party of family values. Bunch of overpaid fat cats if you ask me.

    Lol, the quote about the Democrats not caring about families is hilarious. Are they in favor of legislating a 3 day workweek for the rest of us then, or are congressional families more important than everyone else's?

    I don't think they're only working when they're actually in the halls of Congress.

    But, whatever, the less they do the better AFAIC.

    I actually emailed him a few minutes ago and told him I look forward to him sponsoring legislation to reduce the workweek from 5 to 3 days for all Americans.
