The U.S. Congress Works Only 138 Days a Year. This is a Problem That Must Be FIXED.

But when they "come together", the Republican majority doesn't utilize those precious days efficiently. For instance, today is Sept 14th. Congress returned from Summer vacation on Sept 5th. Between then and now, the Republicans have done absolutely NOTHING.

The U.S. HOUSE is on break tomorrow, and all of next week! The U.S. SENATE only works 3 days next week.

SENATE and HOUSE are both on vacation AGAIN. Started today, and will extend through the next 5 days. You'd think that they accomplish a lot when they're session, and REWARD themselves for getting so much done, by taking these frequent vacations.

U.S. Senators leave town for ANOTHER 10 (TEN!) day vacation!

Their "accomplishments" since their last vacation ended 30 days ago, on September 5th??

1. NO ObamaCare Fixes.

2. NO important Progress on Tax Reform.

3. NO funding for the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Funding expired on September 30th.

4. NO progress on DACA

We pay them $185,000 + expenses, for this?!?!

Why would you want them working more hours?
They screw things up plenty bad in the time they work now.


Yeah, no kidding. As much of a mess as they've made of the country...both parties, mind you...I'd say that the more vacations that Congress takes, the better off we probably are. In fact, I think I'd support giving Congress a pay raise if they'd all just stay home every day.

Congress is coming back from it's 6th vacation of the year, next week. If they'd work more days a year, they wouldn't complain about having "so much on their plate", as Senate leader Mitch McConnell cried about.

Isn't a congressman's job to get re-elected? It certainly seems that way.

More time is spent shaking hands and raising money than doing what their constituents sent them to Congress to do in the first place.
