I see where the republicans are complaining that Reid is "Anti
Christmas" because they have to work on the days before and
i work in the real world and i have to work Monday thru Thursday
this week (may or may not get out early on Thursday),
I also have to work Monday - Thursday the folliowing week.
i see no reason why our legislators can't work many of these days

when they are is session? They all maintain offices...see
constituents...and perform many other functions much of the rest of the
time they aren't actually meeting. I might be cynical too...but this type

they spend the majority of their time fund raising.
we need publicly only funded elections.
get the big money out.
make TV and radio give every candidate free time seeing as they use the

eliminagte all special interests from running ads and that will take a lot
of the corruption out of things.
then any money they got would be a bribe and they could be presecuted.
