Congress doing nothing for its constituents

text size: AAA

Dear Congress,

Guess what. You are fired, and with no severance pay. How does that sound to you? Hurts you in the pocket huh? Just think of the millions people who are going through that. They elected you and hoped you could change things; instead you are just sitting and arguing with the president. None of you care about your country; if you did you would have not let the government shut down.


We have been waiting for several years now to get this country back on its feet, but instead you screwed up again. What difference does it make if you are a Democrat or Republican; your constituents and your country should be the most important factor in your agendas. Get off your butts and do something constructive. Those boys are not out there fighting and coming home with torn limbs so you could argue. Election year is not far behind, and some changes will be made, most likely not to your benefit.
