Congress Reps Playing Solitaire

The guy sitting in the row in front of these two….he’s on Facebook, and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.

Interesting isn’t it, that these individuals who are in session only 3 days a week and are paid $179,000 a year, seem to have trouble maintaining their focus. As Thomas Jefferson once said –

“Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

Think they’re earning their salary? You’ve gotta Be Kidding!
