As an independent contractor, if I don't do my job, I don't get paid AND I lose the customer. Congress is CLEARLY not doing their job - where's the consequence? There's the obvious indirect consequence (10% approval rating, furloughed Fed employees, various departments closed, etc.). I don't see a DIRECT consequence. We have a flawed system where our leaders consistently demonstrate poor leadership with no repercussions. In short, if they can't fix this problem, they shouldn't be there. How that happens, I'm not sure. Maybe we need to redesign our governing system that actually holds congressmen accountable.
