Ya ever noticed how much free time our representatives and senators have?
I mean, and this goes for the Supreme Court as well, you're always hearing in the news about a summer break starting or ending, or a Christmas break or a "just because" break.
The president even has a whole camp where he can relax. That's acres and acres of sweet vacation location.
Sure, you could argue that they need the time to travel back to their constituents, get feedback on the issues of the day and connect with the people. Of course, you could also say it's free time with which to campaign for re-election on our dime.
All I've got to say is that I'd like that type of paid, free time. Of course, in the private sector, that's impossible. Only in government do you get holidays like that.
