House Democrats say GOP wants too many days off
The House will be in session less than one out of every three days next year, a slight decline from past years. House Republicans say they are running the place more efficiently and lawmakers need the time to be with constituents in an election year. Democrats say that's too few days on the job during an economic crisis.

1. Considering what happens to the country when the Republicans do show up for work
This may not be a bad thing.

3. Assholes.
Lazy bastards. More efficient? Yeah. It's easy to be efficient when all you have to do is say, "No".
