    You must be thinking of Ordinary Federal Employees, which Congresscritters are not.  

    Regular federal employees (and contractors, of which there are many, because free market means $$$)  have to work so many hours to accrue leave hours. (exact formula varies).

    Congress however works when they work and take off whenever the leadership lets them, which means they really aren't 'in the office' all that much....

    They used to bitch and moan when Pelosi was Speaker and insisted on having sessions on Mondays and Fridays instead of giving them four-day weekends every week.

    Argh.
