WASHINGTON - Forget the minimum wage. Or outsourcing jobs overseas. The labor issue most on the minds of members of Congress yesterday was their own: They will have to work five days a week starting in January.

The horror.


"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."


I would laugh if this didn't make me want to cry.

In case you missed the irony, soldiers are working IN IRAQ, AWAY FROM FAMILY for 7 days a week, 365 days a year, often for more than a year.

This rightwing eliteist complains that having to work 5 DAYS A WEEK for ONE MONTH is going to put a strain on his family????

It's a typical right-of-center only care about yourself kind of attitude.
