Congress was in session for 112 days in 2012. It may make it to 126 days in session this year. Our country is in almost insurmountable debt. I think Congress is to blame for not preventing most of our problems. Its members are well paid and have an unprecedented lucrative retirement and healthcare system. I think of them being somewhat akin to a bunch (535) of unproductive parasites. Why shouldn’t they have to earn their pay like almost everyone else?
