Democrats Hate Families Saturday, 16 December 2006

Posted by R Garfield in Bemused, Political.

At least, according to one Republican Congressman enamored of a 3-day work week they do. According to Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), forcing someone like himself to work 5 days a week, just like the the people who elected him do,  demonstrates only one thing: “The Democrats could care less about families — that’s what this says.”

Kingston generally spends a grueling 3 days a week in Washington: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

3 days seems sufficient for rubber stamping someone else’s agenda. It doesn’t seem like nearly enough time to actually work on something. To be fair, Kingston and others like him can work outside the office. But do they? Make no mistake: being elected to Congress should mean you have a job, not a sinecure.

But then again, I haven’t worked under 40 hours a week in a long time. Maybe I should be taking time management lessons from the 103 day GOP congress.
