I believe Congress needs to spend time with their constituents and I don't doubt that their time away from Congress is not their own (most of it spent campaigning for the next election and going to fund raisers) but they should structure their time in a way that allows real work to be accomplished. No Labels recommends that Congress work three consecutive five-day work weeks, followed by one week in their home district.

There are service men and women risking their lives 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I think these policy making knuckleheads can sit on their ass and do some work at least Monday through Friday. Absolutely unforgivable

I agree they wouldn't do half the shit they do if they had to work for minimum wage and actually have to work all the time not go on vacation every two or three months. Seriously why don't they cover the debt of America I'm sure out of the house senate and all that they'd cover more than just the debt they decided to put us in

To be aware of what "their" people want, members of Congress must spend time in their districts. But how can they vote on what is needed when they are not present in Washington for over 1/2 the time. They are also among the few who can give themselves a raise.
Senators, Representatives - what is your hourly wage? So many are struggling to even find a minimum wage job. The deficit is already too high. Perhaps a look at waste in government, including your paychecks and pensions need to be...

Senators, Representatives - what is your hourly wage? So many are struggling to even find a minimum wage job. The deficit is already too high. Perhaps a look at waste in government, including your paychecks and pensions need to be looked at before raising taxes on those who go to work every single day.
There is a movie, a "comedy", which best reflects my feelings. In that movie, "Dave", a mere look-alike for the President, finds himself actually being President. Who does he get to help untangle a fiscal mess - a good accountant. Maybe you need actual working people as your advisers instead of lobbyists and special interest groups. The Cabinet could use some of the same advice - someone who has successfully run a profitable business, a career police officer, a trained accountant. Let's get people in place who may not really want the job, but who can DO the job. I know, I'm too idealistic.
