The Boehner's "do nothing" Congress isn't planning on any flurry of activities soon.

Congress Working Less Than 1/3 Of Year In 2014, Getting Full Salary

Just when you thought they couldn't get any do nothinger...
Gee, and Obama gets a $400,000 taxpayer funded salary himself. Imagine all the hard work he's done in the past 14 days.
Imagine TWO weeks vacation! :eek:
Been so long since I had a real vacation it does seem rather luxurious.

I looked it up, It appears the average # of days in session for congress recently is around 140. Thats 38% of the time. They are proposing 114 days this year (but may work more), thats around 31%, not much of a change, lower, but not much lower.

How much of the year is congress usually in session?
Not enough.
It's in session way too much. Being a Congressman or Senator used to be a part time job. The last thing this country needs is professional politicians working 250 days a year.

The last "Do-Something" Congress passed Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, Cash for Clunkers, Lilly Ledbetter, and about a hundred other crappy shitty bills that have hobbled this country and moved it towards a communist hellhole.
Yeah, I'll take do nothing any day.

Do nothing means Barry's bs can't go anywhere.

Good deal for the Reps.

Bad deal for the Dems.

As for Congress and workday?? What do you expect from anyone being payed with tax dollars? Hope your not expecting a forty hour work week because that will never happen.

These Clowns have one cushy job. All funded by we the taxpayer. Perks they have voted in for themselves.

Nice to vote yourself one good living at everyone elses expence. Don't expect it to change though. It ain't gonna.

The last do something Congress actually tried to help the American people. The Boehner says not to judge him for what he passes but by what he repeals. How's he doing on that front? :lol:

I can't understand how conservatives celebrate a Congress that does nothing

They can't pass a budget so we get stuck with sequestration
Unemployment is at 7% and Congress will not do anything
We have 12 million illegals and Congress does nothing

How do conservatives celebrate gridlock?

Look everyone....look what WE did

Causing millions of people to LOSE their insurance policies is called, HELPING PEOPLE?

It's simple: Everything Congress passes is a giant cluster fuck. Why would anyone want more of that?

Sequestration was the best thing that happened to this country since Obama got elected. Unemployment is at 7% because of all the stuff Congress passed earlier. As for illegals, anything Congress passes will only make the problem worse. They have announced their intention to make it worse by granting them all amnesty.
