With a steady diet of the likes of U.S. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and others, it seems obvious we need to put rules in place for the holidays in order for our Congress to remain at work instead of in front of the television microphones and cameras.
Since their automatic pay increases for this year seem a real gift, I would also propose that Congress remain in session a full five-day work week until its members reach a fiscal agreement on our budget.
Allowing our esteemed representatives to be free of so much television time and a full work week, they are far more apt to finally get some work done in Washington, D.C. Their automatic pay raises only further drive home the need for Congress to govern us the same as they govern themselves.
