Does anyone remember why they voted for their “representatives” in Congress? And how’s that going for you? Or as Sarah would say, “how’s those promises workin’ for ya?”
Apparently, we elected folks who are far more interested in being re-elected than in representing us in vitally important issues for our survival. While we’re sitting out here wondering why the hell we can’t get a job or feed our family, or get the medical care we need, or send our kids to college, or . . . (fill in the blank), our elected “representatives” can’t even agree to TRY to work together. It’s so frustrating and embarrassing that I’m close to making a decision to never vote again.
All of them - and I mean ALL OF THEM - should be thrown out and we should start all over again. DON’T RE-ELECT ANY OF THEM!
