ok, so they make how much? and work HOW MUCH?

This really bothers me. Evidently Congress works two and a half day weeks. And that's BETTER than what they did under the GOP! Can anyone excuse this behavior? Anyone?

  • Well they are all too used to the cushy job, big pay, few hours, lotsa perks, so since they won't change, let's FIRE the whole kit-n-kaboodle of them. Replace them with people that have already been warned they damn well will work like the rest of us, or they will get the boot, too.

  • i think WE should be allowed to vote on how much money they make instead of them deciding what they make...if America is so broke why dont they stop getting the money for the work they aint doing!

    i agree fire 'em all...except Ron Paul, he seems honest & real.

  • SSSSSHHHHHHHHHH!!!! For God's sake be quiet!!!! The less time they spend at work, the less time they have to dream up crazy new spending sprees...the less time they have to fool with the mess they already have in the works. SSSSSHSHHHHHHHHH!!!!

    Actually, since they are taking the time off anyway I think THEY should furlough days!

  • Friday, did you know they are doing another money bomb? Rand Paul is one of the candidates who will receive funds,

    Special, I almost thought the same thing, but I really think that they should get half a paycheck since they work half a week.
