Now that the Democrats will take control of the House of Representatives in January it looks like there will be a few changes. One of them is that the House will work 5 days a week while in session.
Culture Shock on Capitol Hill: House to Work 5 Days a Week
From the article; this is just too funny:
"Keeping us up here eats away at families," said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays. "Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families -- that's what this says."
What makes this guy so special? Why doesn't he move his family to the Capitol to be with him. The House isn't in session 365 days a year so he can go home during the breaks. Does he think the Democrats don't have families either? What about the men and women in the military who are deployed who are away from their families for months, if not years at a time. This guy ran for office knowing that he would be working in Washington D.C. If he's not willing to put in the time required maybe he should resign or find another line of work.
