Our fourth story OutFront: working hard or hardly working?
If you are a member of the House of Representatives next year, the answer might be the latter.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the 2013 schedule for the House today, and its members will be in session for just 126 days. And we should hope that fiscal cliff negotiations don't extend into January, because they'll only be there for a total of 8 days that month.
By comparison, the average American worker puts in around 230 days per year. Is this unfair? OutFront tonight to discuss are National Review writer Reihan Salam and Democratic strategist Maria Cardona.
That is outrageous. That is $1531.00/per day of actual work, if you want to call it that. Personally, I have seen them do little more than whine, and I am pretty sick of it. They are worse then useless and we, as voters, need to see to it that they are not reelected so they can waste more time at the tax payers expense. Term limits look better and better.
