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.

  1. I’m torn between happy that congress isn’t around as much to do the damage it surely would… and angry because they make six figures and work about a tenth as much as I have to to eat.

    So out of 38 possible days of work they are working 17
    or 1.8 days a week for 9 weeks
    $174,000 a year or $3350+- a week for working 1.8 days a week

    I am running for congress! what a sweet gig!
