Dennis Thomas: Send Congress on permanent vacation

What is the real purpose of Congress? They are supposed to make laws to promote and maintain our country, as mandated by the U.S. Constitution. That sounds reasonable. This past year, our Congress has been in session 133 days. Most working people work a minimum of 240 days. Our representatives make $174,000 a year. That works out to about $163.50 an hour based on 133 days. That’s great pay, if you can get it.
