But They've Accomplished So Much!
It was with plenty of fanfare late last year that House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced that Congress would work a 5-day workweek in Washington (like most Americans) as part of their "cleaning up Republican messes" initiative. It was with significantly less fanfare that Congress distributed its 2008 schedule yesterday showing that the House will only have three 5-day workweeks next year. You might have heard, folks, that there's this little election-thingie next year, but it's really just because the Democrats have accomplished so much this year that they don't have to work as hard next year!
