Pittsburgh Live cites an interesting survey:
A recent survey by the National Conference of State Legislatures found that 85 percent of Pennsylvania lawmakers consider themselves "full time" when asked for their occupation.
If 15 percent of our legislators aren't full-time, why are we paying them roughly $78,000 a year?
But maybe it's the other 85% who are bullshitters.
As Bumsted notes, The Senate is lucky if it meets 70 to 80 days a year, and the House held only 71 voting sessions in 2008.
