Back in November 2012, I posted 113th Congress: Work?! It included this segment from The Rachel Maddow Show:

Then in February 2013, I posted Sequester schmequester: House GOP votes to recess for the week. Senate, too.

Now here we are, nearly exactly a year after my "Work?!" post, and, coincidentally, there is another Rachel Maddow video to share:

Rachel Maddow:

Nice deal right? ... That kind of a schedule and a six-figure salary for doing it? That's a combination that is impossible not to love.

More vacation... that's their big plan.

And now the GOP is thinking of cancelling more days again. During this session. Again. They're only working 19 more days this year, see, because, see, they can't figure out a way to "fill their agenda." No, I'm not kidding, watch the video.

They had time for a government shutdown, but no time to work on immigration reform. Make that, "no time to work," period. They are on track to be the most unproductive Congress in history.

Since John Boehner became Speaker, the House has accomplished nothing.

    I'm dumfounded. Even though I posted that calendar on my own blog, I didn't realize how pathetic this was.
