Lazy-ass Republicans Cry About Having to Work for a Living

Back when local wingnut talk show host Fred Honsberger actually appeared regularly on his local cable TV show Honsberger Live, he would often rip into his audience, Pittsburghers, and Democrats about being lazy bums who were afraid of hard work. So I wonder how he would handle this story:
Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, the Maryland Democrat who will become House majority leader and is writing the schedule for the next Congress, said members should expect longer hours than the brief week they have grown accustomed to [...]

"Keeping us up here eats away at families," said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who
typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays. "Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families -- that's what this says."
Is it possible that Kingston doesn't know how out of touch he sounds to the many Americans holding down 2 or 3 jobs without the benefits of healthcare and retirement packages that Congress has???

Did it ever occur to anyone that the republicans are the ones busting their asses at work so that the lazy ass democrats can stay home and collect their welfare and "disability" pension?

Wow, 50% of the voting age public is out of work?

That's shocking. And awe-ing. And mind-numbingly idiotic.

Not just out of work. The Rapepublicans disabled them.
