Where Do You Sign Up For This Gig?
You know how Republicans in Congress are totally against teachers, who make TOO much money, work TOO few hours and don't work a full year anyway.....
They rail against the unemployed and those on welfare taking other people's money for "doing nothing."
They are INCENSED at the waste in government.
But the time THEY put in, working for YOU on your taxpayer dime...well, that's a different story:
Now, I can't say for sure....it's just my guess...but I wonder if Mr. Romeny's dropping (or at least not pushing upward) poll numbers would have anything do to do with this. Or maybe it's their not-winning-everybody-over candidate's completely bizarre responses to his already disgraceful comments about the President's foreign policy in Libya:
"Majority Leader, R- , announced on Friday that, after next week, the House won’t be returning to session until after the Nov. 6 elections."
"Speaking on the House floor, Cantor said that the decision for House members not to return to the Capitol in October has been made given the Senate’s anticipated passage next week of a bill to keep government running beyond the Oct. 1 start of the new fiscal year, a bill already passed on Thursday in the House."
I wonder if these guys feel they need to do a little more campaigning among the masses to make their candidates more palatable to the undecided, whoever they are. I'm sure those job bills, immigration matters, wars on women's reproductive rights, voter suppression, dashing environmental concerns, dismantling the educational system can wait till after they get Romney and Ryan elected.....
“Unfortunately, the Do Nothing Congress wants to go home,” Pelosi said.
Or MAYBE it's dawned on them that if you're NOT THERE, you can't be seen as being AGAINST everything, this close to the election.
I'd Love to have those work hours ......and even HALF the pay!
