Want a short work week? Run for Congress

Congress has shorted their work week to just 2.5 days a week: the House has taken to starting on Tuesdays at 6:30 pm and adjourning "before the sun goes down" on Thursdays.  They did manage to stick around for one Friday vote.  What was so important to drag our lawmakers into work on a Friday?  Approving a 5.8 percent increase in their own budget, of course.  You don't expect them to tighten their belts along with shortening their work week, do you?
