So will you start with Hatch and Bishop?
Agreed. And Esquire, yes.
Several years ago, as I stood in line to vote, I ended up chatting with a
neighbor. He had interesting philosophy. He said, "I never vote for an
incumbent." At the time, I thought that was a little extreme. But I'm
starting to think he was onto something.
EsquireSpringville, UTSo will you start with Hatch and Bishop?======== Agreed.But me-thinks this was a sutle
chide at Jim Matheson.
@esquire you get right at the root of the problem, people always
want the other guys senator and congressman removed from office but think their
guy is just fine. They tend to forget those representatives dont reflect their
views because it is not their job to represent them their job is to represent
the views of their own constituents. For some reason I doubt this letter writer
will be voting against his own representatives.
Robert S. Brodstein, Ok I'll bite but only if you stay away from extremists
from the right. I'll willingly put in 1 Matheson for your Hatch, Lee,
Bishop, and Chafetz if you guarantee a Congress that will stand up and work for
the American people rather than their pocketbook. Obstruction is more than
dereliction of duty. It is treason in my book. I am not talking about
disagreeing with the other party but obstructing legislation that was one once
supported but is now "whipped" into voting against for the sole purpose
of destroying the POTUS at the expense of the citizens of the United States.
This is why there is 10% that approve of Congress. The 10% must think the 90%
Finally, an American who gets it! Too often we want to blame the sitting
President, but they can't spend money without Congress. GW Bush wants two
10-year wars? Congress gave him the money (even though one war would supposedly
"pay for itself"). Obama wants health care reform? Congress gave him
One term for everybody, from the dog catcher to the president.
I thought we elected an all-new Congress in 2010? But what would be revealing
would be to see the percentage of the voting population that got the Tea Party
Congress of 2010 in? But yes, when the American people are asked,
and most of them say to go one direction and Congress disregards that
repeatedly, instead sticking to a party line, then things are wrong.
Short, sweet, and to the point! Couldn't agree with you more!
