Check this, 43% of congressmen once out of office go on to be Lobbyist, this is well known in DC and that the Lobbyist write up the bills then give them to the Congressmen who very few read and the pass the Bills on the Lobbyist advice. So come next week all we are voting for are puppets. If we really want action on the government don't blame the people whom we put in as President but instead we best take a long look at your Congressmen. I have seen this over and over everyone says we need to get rid of these fools in Congress yet come election time guess what, we turn right around and put in the same ones from our own state right back in. Wake up America.......
About 100 reasons????!!
Our current Congress is a shame. Please vote new members when ever you can coming November 6.
As long as the American voter is more interested in the kardashians, jersey shore, American idol and all the other BS that serves as "entertainment" we will go nowhere.
The mindset seems to be it is the congressman/woman from some other state that is to blame. It could not possibly be the candidate I voted for. So the same thieves and liars keep getting into office.
I'll vote across the board for independents this election, I will not vote for a single incumbent. I cannot think of a single senator/congressman that deserves to keep their job. But guess what, most incumbents will get back in.
As long as voters stay along party lines with no thought to anything else, we are hosed. You can blame the president, the repugs, the democraps all you want. The real blame is on politicians, and the fools that keep giving them jobs.
Take away their pensions, their health care, and their jobs. Send them home with nothing, which is exactly what they are giving us.
How effin' stupid are the American people? We keep putting our hands on the hot stove, over and over. Are you not tired of getting burned? I am, fire them all, every lying one of them.
Term limits are only a start. Criminal convictions of any lawmaker betraying his office and the people. Stop voting millionaires into office that will only serve their own interest. Limiting campaign contribution from corporations. Stop allowing congress to police itself in these matters. Citizens are very much capable of sitting in judgement for those we elect to office. End lobbying efforts for the sake of corporations that do not benefits the american economy.
Tax corporations that have a majority of employees overseas. Bring an end to NAFTA. Stricter border controls and services to illegal aliens.
It would have been a much shorter article if they had found something that congress has done right. I am sure they did something....
They should all spend some time in jail for treason, they are incompetent, out of touch and do nothing even when they are in session.
After the summer break, they came back for 12 "working" days and then went on break again until after the election.
The blame falls directly on us, the voters, We must be brain damaged to keep hiring the same set of clowns time after time after time after time, ad nauseum. As long as we let them get away with it, they will. There are no consequences for doing a lousy job.
So p*** and moan as much as you want, but if you vote for a single incumbent, then you are telling them it is ok to fiddle while the U.S. burns.
Fire them all and start over with hones amateurs.
