Congress's Summer Vacation

If you are like most working folks, you get one or two weeks of vacation time AFTER spending the year working, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. To get 5 weeks of paid vacation after working less than 200 days is a dream, unless of course you are a member of Congress.

The most recent polls show that the American people, the folks that Congress works for, give Congress a favorable rate of 9% - less than even the hated George Bush. Said another way, the employers (us) ain't happy with the work of the employees (Congress). However, that does not stop Congress from giving itself a 5 week summer vacation, with pay.

What could you do with a paid 5 week vacation this summer? Of course, folks, you must remember that we are the peons and members of Congress are the elites.

Do yourself, as well as the rest of us, a favor this fall - kick out every seated member of Congress. Send the clear message: "you work for us and not us for you".

This 5 weeks of vacation infuriates me. In the past three years, I've had no vacation. If I don't work, I don't get paid. I pay for my own healthcare.

Coming later this year, I will be required to take off 4 weeks without pay.

On top of this, they run away on a critical matter that effects the U.S. economy and even national security today- oil drilling.

Instead of holding debate and voting- what they were ostensibly elected to office for, they're off galavating around doing nothing except lining their pockets with our tax money.

On the plus side, at least they're not in there passing more restrictions on us. But they can make up for that.

Tell me again why these ruling elites shouldn't be kicked out.

Their behaviour is absolutely disgusting.
