We pay members of Congress $174,000 a year. We are not getting our money’s worth. No matter which party they belong to.
While almost 20% of Americans are out of work or underemployed, Congress wastes time and our money passing laws to affirm that the Motto of the United States is IN GOD WE TRUST and requesting the US Mint to mint coins celebrating the Baseball Hall of Fame, instead of passing a Jobs Bill, regulating the big banks and corporations, passing a budget or raising the minimum wage so we can restore the middle class to prosperity.
According to this Sunday's news talk shows, even the 12 member Bipartisan Debt Commission with special powers to cut the deficit CAN'T get the job done.
IT IS THE SENSE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE INCOMPETENT AT THEIR JOBS AND SHOULD BE FIRED OR FORCED TO RESIGN IMMEDIATELY.
