This article just made me more angry with politicians than I already was and that was already high! Just the wording “war room” is a problem! They are acting like a bunch of 5 yr olds on a playgound fighting over the equipment! The total waste of money on elections amaze me yet they complain of the deficit! Where is the LOGIC and COMMON SENSE????
Congress is the MAJOR PROBLEM, not the President, not whether they are Democrats or Republicans, it is all politicians! They just cannot seem to work together and even though I personally do not follow any party I have seen more problems with republican politicians from local all the way up! Why are they all our there complaining about the deficit while they are fundraising for millions to bash the other side? Where is the reality at about the actual issues? In about 1994 when Newt was speaker of the house he created his “lists” for Republicans to follow when talking about Democrats you call them dishonest and un-american and when talking about Republicans they are honest and real americans! This unfortunately has been like a snowball that has grown to a ridiculous amount of crap thrown back and forth!
We need to set Term Limits and get rid of the “career politicians”! We need to IMMEDIATELY STOP lifetime pensions! We need to STOP their personal health Ins we pay for! We need to make sure that all the garbage added to bills is gone! Look at is this way, when a bill should be about a few pages and it ends up being hundreds there is a major problem! Take a bill that maybe is about social security but when you read through the hundeds of pages there are things like some obscure museum for some politicians state that has nothing to do with the issue! When you look at it realistically if they put something in to get a vote that is Bribery and if someone says if you put this in I will vote your way that is Extortion, period! That is criminal! Yes I expect there to be changes and compromises when and if it has to do with the bill at hand but if not then it should not be included! The reason most taxpayers do not read a bill is because it is so long and frankly hard to understand the what it really is about! We should not have that problem, EVER!!!
Until we quit voting by party only and look at what the candidate brings to the table regardless of affiliation we will never get what we deserve! We should never allow them to vote themselves a raise because we cannot do that in our own jobs so it is unrealistic for us to allow them to! I also believe that we should not be paying for their health caare when there are so many uninsured in this country! They have become to comfortable and we just follow blindly when we need to force the issues and make them to the job we voted them in to do! The perks from lobbyists should end because that is also a form of bribery that I find disgusting and totally wrong! Just because huge corporations have unlimited money to throw at them they get what they want but what about the rest of us that can hardly get our own congressmen to listen to us! We get a form letter stating that they are happy to hear from us yet nothing about what they will do about something! We need to stand up and make them accountable and do the job they were voted in to do!!! Yes I will continue to repeat myself until there is change but unfortunately I doubt it will happen quickly when the politicians are way too comfortable!
