New Congress To Work Five Days A Week

Thu Dec 07, 2006 6:08 am

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...le/2006/12/05/AR2006120501342.html

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."
"Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon"

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.

Representative Jack Kingston (R-Georgia) doesn't give a crap about the job that he's elected to do - that's what this says.  Yeah sure

Holy hell, a five day work week? No way! It's about time. Talk about overpay for underworked.
