2. Republicans don't like to work

They just like to get paid--just like common criminals.

3. Obviously not.

Their paychecks should reflect their actual hours worked.

15. I think the SOTU is scheduled in inauguration years, to be several weeks after the inauguration.

So the new president can give the SOTU. I think it was the same in 2009.

9. The House will be back in session on Feb 4.

It will be in session through the 6th. It will reconvene the 12th through the 15th and then again the 25th through the 28th.

11. I hope they're adjourned until Feb. 2015...

14. And they are fiscally conservative?? And they complain about unemployed people being lazy

and not working?? They have a damn nerve!! They should be working 5 days a week like the rest of us.
This is insane. We, the people, should demand that our money NOT go and pay these idiots for working less than 1/2 of the year. You know this August they are in session just 2 days!!! Just 2 days!!! Can we shutdown all our businesses for 29 days in August -- Let's ALL go on vacation!!!
