With millions of Americans out of work, don’t you think it sounds pretty stupid to have Sen. John Kyl and Sen. Jim DeMint complaining about having to work around the Christmas holidays? Seriously. These two senators have complained that Sen. Harry Reid has them working during the Christmas break, because they say it’s unfair with these holy days for Christians. It really was a shot at Reid, because he’s a Mormon.

But here’s the real issue for Roland Martin. We’re paying you to work. There are millions of Americans who are going to be working on the 27th, the 28th, the 29th, and the 30th – all those days after Christmas. Why can’t the Senate actually work those days? Do you know how many days they take off every, single year?
