With the Democrats in power, there are plans for sweeping reforms in Congress. One of the first items on the list. Working five days a week. That's right. In the last Congress, work started late Tuesday, and stopped Thursday afternoon. Running the government is tough work. The real kicker is that not only are some members of congress upset (and we don't blame them, we would be, too), but they've found a way to slap a talking point or two on the issue. Here's Jack Kingston (R-GA): "Keeping us up here eats away at families," said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays. "Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families -- that's what this says."
The assumption, as others have noted,, is that Rep. Kingston has been trying to legislate a two-day work week for the entire American work force and it just hasn't been passed yet. We're not even going to check, because we know it has to be true, or he wouldn't have had the balls to say that.
