What do we pay our government officials for?


I was watching CNN last night and they were discussing how little time our governing officials *house/senate* actually spend doing what we pay them for.. Reportedly they spend only about 1/3 of the year in their chambers. Listed below are 3 items that were recently on the floor. People are hungry and many have no medical insurance but our Congressmen and Senators have time to spend on?

1. Resolution on Mongolian statehood
2. King of Thailand's 60th anniversary
3. U.S. success at '76 Paris wine tasting


I mean our government can't get shit done but they have time to debate items like i listed above. Only in America.

I beg your pardon! They were in session long enough to vote themselves a raise!
