Like rain on your wedding day
Yea, unlike those hardworking days when the Democrats were in charge:
House to work 17 days in first two months of 2010, says Hoyer
The House will work a total of 17 days during January and February of next year, according to the 2010 legislative calendar released Wednesday by the Majority Leader’s office.
The schedule seen here has Congress working 20 days the first two months of next year. That would be three more working days than Nancy Pelosi’s 2010 schedule.
Hoyer jumps into the action, criticizing the schedule as well:
“I hope that next year, in spite of the lack of days in session, Republicans will put partisanship aside and work with us to address the challenges facing our nation and get Americans back to work,” Hoyer added.
But, pesky facts …
Next year, the House is scheduled to be in session about the same number of days as the last presidential election year, in 2008, when Democrats controlled the schedule.
Yea, it does make me wonder. What botox does to one’s brain.
