Family matters

The Washington Post had a story today about the “culture shock” taking place on Capitol Hill now that the U.S. House of Representatives is to start working five days a week next month.

“Keeping us up here eats away at families. Marriages suffer,” Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., who typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays, told the paper. “The Democrats could care less about families – that’s what this says.”

What families?

The ones back home waiting for solutions to affordable health care or a higher minimum wage or the outsourcing of jobs?

Or the ones that are overseas, fighting a war on terror, leaving behind spouses and children, moms and dads, some of them never to return?
