Nice work, if you can get it

In declaring that he now opposes the compromise plan for the Belleayre Resort at Catskill Park, U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey on Tuesday cited, among other reasons, the fact that many of the jobs promised by the developer will be only part-time positions.

"Those are not real jobs. They're not full-time jobs," Hinchey said.

That's pretty funny coming from a member of the House of Representatives, which meets an average of 136 days per year.

Where did you hear the Congressman say that? I haven't seen it anywhere else.
