Letter: Congressional 'work'; what a gig
Sunday, May 6, 2012
Doing nothing is what Congress does best. It’s another recess week for our lazy leaders.
By the time the Republican-led House returns this week, members will have been working in Washington, D.C. on just 41 of the first 127 days of 2012 -- and that was the busy part of the year. They are planning to be on vacation -- er, doing “constituent work” -- 17 of the year’s remaining 34 weeks, and even when they are in town the typical workweek is three days.
