Lazy bums have been basically working Tuesday night-Thursday and getting away with it...And one Congressman has the nerve to complain:

"Keeping us up here eats away at families," said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays. "Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families -- that's what this says."

Good, maybe this will help encourage some turnover. While representatives need to spend time in thier home districts, thier primary job is debating and passing laws. The are well compensated for that. As one of thier employers, I cannot say that I have been getting my moneys worth.
