More time together

MORE TIME TOGETHER: Sen. Angus King says that elected officials could be more productive if they spent more time together, as proposed in our Make Congress Work! action plan. "It sounds frivolous to say where congressmen spend their weekends matters, but I really think it does. And I think it is part of the problem in the current Congress. It is really easy to demonize your opposition if you don’t know them," he says. King also says that Congress needs to start having five-day workweeks: Mario Trujillo for The Hill: Sen. King seeks to court allies

We’ve just launched 24 members of Congress and we’ll have 75 to 80 by the end of the year who pledge in their deliberations to meet regularly, to put country before party, to govern for future generations as opposed to the next election cycle, to tell the American people the truth and to work together," he says: Cathy Finkler for MSNBC: Huntsman: ‘Our nation works better when we have a viable two-party system’
