Congress Working Less Than 1/3 Of Year In 2014, Getting Full Salary


WASHINGTON (CBSMiami) – How would you like a job where you can work less than a third of the year and still make $174,000 with full benefits?

Turns out, all you have to do is get elected to Congress.

House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric Cantor released the Congressional schedule for 2014 and your elected representatives will only work 113 days next year. According to the Huffington Post, the House worked 126 days this year, but only worked 107 in 2012.

Breaking the numbers down further, members of the House of Representatives will make approximately $1,539.82 per day or, given an eight-hour work day, roughly $192.47 per hour.

This is why we need term limits. If they had only 8 years to serve and had to work a regular job again with normal retirement, would they not do a better job? Yes they would, remember vote out all the old and lets vote all  new  in 2014.

    Hi, I’m starting a recall petition here in Oregon to recall an attorney/legislator, on what I believe is an oregon constitutional violation. I’m not real computer literate. Can you leave me an e-mail address and I’ll e-mail you the recall petition. Maybe it is something that might work for you. Thanks, Ken Medenbach
