The party of nothing but stupid excuses
So the new House Dems plan to extend the legislative work week from 3 days to 5. You know, something more like what normal people do in their jobs. Apparently, some find this work thing to be a bit distasteful:
“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.”
Sure, that’s what this says. Not, “we elected you to do a particular job so you actually have to work for your pay now.”
Some of the Dems also act like they’ve never had a job in their lives, either:
The new schedule poses a headache for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who runs her 7-year-old daughter’s Brownie troop meetings on Monday afternoons in Weston, Fla. “I’ll have to talk to the other mothers and see if we can move it to the weekend,” she said.
Yes, you might have to move that meeting. Meanwhile, a large number of women and men in your state are working multiple jobs and never get to attend these kinds of meetings at all. Want to do something about that, perhaps?
