I work 40+ hours a week, how about you?

There is an interesting article in the New York Times about Congress leaders proposing shorter work weeks so http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/27/washington/27cong.html?ei=5065&en=439f1f8fa2e28929&ex=1194148800&partner=MYWAY&pagewanted=print after they vowed to keep representatives in Washington longer once they took over power. If lawmakers aren’t making laws, why are the tax payers paying them? I propose that Congress only be paid for the time that they are in session and not when they are campaigning or spending time away from DC not doing the job we elected them to do.
