    part of the Do-Nothing 109th that is finding it hard to keep up with the Dems in control... what a shame... take care LaHood & Friends...

    GOP congressmen quit because of five-day work week.


    Nine Republican congressmen have so far announced that they will not be running for re-election. One of those lawmakers, Rep. Ray LaHood (R-IL), complained “that the Democrats’ new five-day workweek” is part of the reason they’re all retiring:
    “I do think the schedule and the flying is a huge pain for people, particularly those who are from the Midwest or even further West,” he said, adding that it’s “probably the worst part of the job.”

    “I think that has played into these retirement announcements,” said the seven-term congressman from Peoria.​

    In Dec. 2006, Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) also griped about having to work five days each week, stating, “Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families — that’s what this says.”

    oh the drama... lol

    nobody FORCED these little fukcers to run for congress.

    Imagine how the troops feel that have a 7 day work week and the threat of being killed everyday.

    wonder how these guys voted on the 'war'

    Would you want to lie, cheat, steal, murder, rape, pillage, and destroy five days a week for less than 170k a year?
