Honestly, have you ever seen a bigger bunch of pre-schoolers? This Congress just wants to hold it's breath till it gets its way. Children. Why do we pay these folks, anyway? Shouldn't we have some recourse to force them into doing what we pay them to do? I need to think about this.
As for the farm bill, wouldn't you think they'd just pass that and get it over with so our tax dollars won't be spent on exorbitant prices for milk (that we'll then have to pay even more for at the grocery store)? But no ... this bunch of babies will use the farm bill as "bargaining" power. They have forgotten that we matter. That real people - not phantom voters - are affected by their lack of activity.
Seriously - we need to implement term limits on these people so they aren't always worried about their next election. Getting the money out of elections would help a lot, too.
Our democracy is severely wounded: we need to fix it before it's too late.
