Congress is off on vacation again! It would not be so objectionable if they had met a few of their obligations, kept even one of their most frequently repeated promises to their voters or done anything productive. All summer both parties have allegedly been working their smooth manicured fingers to the bone trying to fix our health care. Most of their time has been taken up posing in front of cameras either in hearings, press conferences or TV interviews focused on Russia, rumors and politics.
We the People who pay their rediculous salaries and overlook their outrageous perks, put up with their elitist attitude of superiority and are getting really tired of the serial lying, we work hard for our money. Our taxes are entirely too high, our health insurance is too expensive and the deductibles are unbelievably high as are the co-pays. These two items have been high on the promise list of every candidate running for a seat on Capitol Hill. Repeal Obamacare and lower taxes. Usually said in a raised voice with an upheld clenched fist and a fierce grin to overwhelming applause, whistles, hoots and other various crowdly indications of strong approval. We remember!
So why do we now have a fist full of excuses but no repeal of Obamacare? Oh, I have heard all of the stuttered “reasons” that merely sound like they wanted to work something out with the Democrats all along. We all have heard over and over how willing the Dems are to “come to the table and compromise”. The only problem is that it isn’t compromise at all when there is a condition…….we have to KEEP Obamacare. Mitch wants to give up on repeal now. Give up? Did George Washington give up? Did Benjamin Banneker give up? You never ever get to the goal if you give up!!
And they went on vacation. They could not make any personal sacrifice of time to accomplish what they had been sent there to do. They went on vacation. It wasn’t to stay in touch with their constituents, they don’t care about their constituents. Those were the same constituents hooting and clapping in that crowd while they were making their famous heartfelt promises about REPEALING OBAMACARE AND LOWERING TAXES! Furthermore, we now have a whole range of improvements on the Pony Express, even snail mail works eventually. They should have stayed in Washington and at least Repealed Obamacare. Going on vacation was inexcusable!
We have a horrible bunch on Capitol Hill and we really need to do something about it! We need to research voting records and pay attention. We need to look for who is paying for the advertising and not believe what any candidate says about himself or any other candidate! We need to be careful who we elect because part of this problem is our fault, we became apathetic and complacent.
We got exactly who we elected – wimpy, lazy, greedy, lying, establishment crony capitalists, willing to sell the country out to make a buck or to stay in power.
