Here's what I wrote in 2012: Republicans control the calendar in the House of Representatives. They're cutting back their work schedule. Again.

And this: 113th Congress: Work?!

Then earlier this year I wrote this: Sequester schmequester: House GOP votes to recess for the week. Senate, too.

Here's what I wrote a few days ago: VIDEO-- Why everybody would like to be a member of Congress: Lots and lots of time off. Lots.

Here is what the calendar for the first session of the 133th Congress looked like:

And now, unbelievably, it's getting worse. Eric Cantor just released the House calendar for 2014:

House calendar 2014

Roll Call:

The House is scheduled to be in session 113 days in 2014.

This schedule is:

  • laughable
  • disconcerting
  • embarrassing
  • bewildering
  • ridiculous
  • outrageous
  • contemptible
  • self-serving
  • obscene
  • aw-w-wkward!

Feel free to add to the list.

Are Republicans trying to lose more voter confidence? Then again, with less time at work, there's less time to obstruct. Meantime, they can keep using their trusty town hall mob scenes meetings to spread their lies and make their threats.

Here's why I feel the way I do:

chart bills passed by Congress thru 2012 worst GOP fail

...and dropping.
