The Audacity of 5 Day Work Week (pt.2)

Republican Rep. Jack Kingston continues to complain about working five days a week. I might little sympathy for the poor Congressmen, but 109th Congress under Republican leadership were only in session for just 241 days over two years, 13 days less than the “Do-Nothing Congress” of 1948. In those 241 days, the Congress left their work undone.
Congress has tried it Kingston’s way and it didn’t work. The 109th Congress — which has “been in session for a grand total of 103 days this year” — “failed to enact a host of once top-priority legislation on issues such as overhauling Social Security, immigration and lobbying laws.” Congress even failed its basic responsibility of providing a budget for the government, completing “just two of the 11 fiscal 2006 appropriation bills.”
Any normal employer would have fired the an employee who only showed up 103 days a year and who did not finish their duties.
