House of Representatives to work overtime for a change
The days of the pathetically lazy
House members hoping to spend quality time with their families duringthe holiday season got some bad news this week: they may be inWashington days before both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
In an e-mail sent by a House Democrat and obtained by The Hill, the newHouse schedule calls for votes potentially through Nov. 17, theSaturday before Thanksgiving. The lower chamber will then reconvene onDec. 4, with leadership hoping that Dec. 11 will be the last week ofthe session.
It's about time. These people get free health care and more days off than the average American worker. Surely they can handle working a few days overtime.
