Ahhhh, remember when Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) boasted that lawmakers would work four or five days a week to bring change to America after the dems taking control of the House in 2006 and then when O-man was running for president?
Well it seems as though those days are over and congress is back in more of a
hard working slackass routine.
Members usually get in sometime late on Tuesday and leave on Thursday, yet receive full tax payers dollars in their paychecks at the end of the week.
DAYM!!! How do I get that job again?
But of course, the dems are saying why should they stay when they can get the job in half tha time.
I dont know, let’s rattle off a few things, High unemployment rate, Health care bill, Financial Crisis, Afghanistan, Iraq, Low troop morale, Bailouts, Auto industry…just to name a few things.
Asked about the abbreviated workweeks, Hoyer said Tuesday: “I think you understand why we’re doing it.” He pointed to the appropriations bills stalled in the Senate, but he didn’t cast blame at senators for moving so slowly. “It takes a long time to do it,” he said.
Well, if you will excuse me, need to go chat to my boss and see if I can do the same thing…my guess is once I bring this up to him, I’ll be in the unemployment line with the rest of them tomorrow.
See you at the soup kitchen on Thanksgiving
