By Frank Byronn Glenn -- When Bush and Cheney were President and Vice-President — or as my friends refer to it — when the Evil Empire ruled the world– and the Republicans controlled the House and Senate, form 2001 to 2006, they reduced the Congressional work week to a day and a half — sometimes two days. When asked to explain it — one word-smithing policy wonk had the answer right away. Republican are just more efficient than the Democrats. And I guess, upon reflection — I agree. Republicans discovered a less-time consuming way to do nothing — and simply implemented it straight away — after the politically necessary and mandated several months of study, analysis, partisan bickering — and debate.
Besides — when you reduce your work week from five days to two — and keep your compensation the same — that’s a 250% increase in pay per year — without even having to have an embarrassing and self-serving vote on the floors of Congress — exposing yourself to the raised eye-brow, wide-eyed outrage and indignation of presumptuous voters all across America. Or as Republican Congressional leaders refer to it — a win- win!
