    The article starts of by castigating Congress for not spending more time in Washington “working.”

    As of the end of February, the House of Representatives has spent a total of 31 days doing business in Washington and the U.S. Senate has spent 30. If nothing changes, they are basically on track to meet the same monthly Washington workload as the 114th Congress where the House averaged a whopping 13 days a month in both 2015 and 2016, and the Senate’s monthly average was 14 days across the same time period.

    Well, I for one am more than content that they aren'! Their main job is to represent their constituents and they can't know what their constituents want by staying inside the Beltway. Relying on “back home staff” is not the same as getting back to where they came from. And, even though they may be facing “protests” set up by Leftist organizations, they still can get the feel of what their people want.

    And, with modern communications technology, they are never very far from their D.C. offices and staffs.

    One voted for Trump to get rid of the swamp. The swamp is all of congress and senate but yet everyone voted them back in. If voter's would have voted them out and Trump had hired adviser's with some common sense and experience it might just have worked. Can't see it working as it is now.

    The leader of the nation, having taken 4 vacations in the 6 weeks he's been a public servant, isn't setting a very good example.

    Absolutely. He is playing golf and costing taxpayers $3 million per trip. That's $12 million in 6 weeks. What Obama averaged for 1 year.
