This picture's worth a trillion dollars, folks. Take a close look.
The House Minority Leader pictured standing, far right, speaks while his colleagues play solitaire on Monday night as the House convened to vote on a new budget. (Associated Press) The guy sitting in the row in front of these two is on Facebook. The guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.
These are the folks that couldn't get the budget out by October 1, and they are about to control our health care, cap and trade, and the list goes on and on….
What do you think, should we buy them larger screen computers, or a ticket back home – permanently?
This picture documents one of their 3-day work weeks for which they each earn $179,000 per year – and which we all pay for.
Editor's note: Kinda makes you want to vote, doesn't it?

Why do they have American flags beside each of their computers?
I wonder?

If you look closer there are American flags on the desks. I don't think this is the Canadian Government. Not that it would make any difference, but just saying.
