Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) — one of the worst from the old GOP Congress — on why working for a living is against family values: “Keeping us up here eats away at families. Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families — that’s what this says.”

Good grief! So now, expecting our elected representatives to work five days a week is a moral issue. Hey buddy, I wish five days a week was ALL I had to work. No one made you run for Congress, so if it’s just too much of a burden, take a hike. Ever think about what the war you voted for is doing to military families, where one or more members are deployed for a year multiple times? I’ll bet the soldiers coming home in body bags would be glad to work a five day work week, as would their families.

You are pissing up a tree if you think I care that you might have to work a few more hours next year. I’m having a hard time getting that fiddle to play.
