CONGRESS SCHEDULES 113 WORK DAYS FOR ALL OF 2014
I don’t understand. Today’s news crows that Congress returns to take up the nation’s business. First item up is the extension of long-term unemployment benefits. Congress, however, has scheduled only 113 working days for all of 2014. How is it that they who are virtually unemployed (113 days out of 365) and receiving lavish pay and benefits do not see that (ironically) they should also receive benefits as the unemployed? Shouldn’t they understand those Americans missing 365 of work are 2/3 as underemployed as Congress?
Furthermore, doesn’t Congress realize that they are the cause of unemployment for the masses? Job crushing regulations, ObamaCare, cronyism another hike in the minimum wage and self-dealing by politicians and unions cause unemployment. Congress causes unemployment.
I also don’t understand that during the turmoil of the rollout of ObamaCare and the expiration of unemployment benefits, President Obama took his longest vacation ever, EVER, 20 days, while Washington smoldered. Are golf and beach bumming in Hawaii the modern equivalent of Rome burning while Emperor Nero fiddled? Oh yeah, Obama had full perks and benefits during his ‘well-deserved rest.’ Labor on, peasants, those of you who have part-time or meager jobs.
Sic semper tyrannis.
