Shutdown over: What next?
Re: shutdown, tea party, suit-wearing scumbags - aka congress
Unbelievable that the grown ass men and women that we elect can't get their act together. But honestly, why should they care about us?
They have great healthcare, they have huge paychecks, they live in mansions, they have personal assistants and or drivers, they continue to get paid during the shutdown, they have pensions for life, they have great perks, and the list goes on and on.
They don't have to choose whether to buy their prescriptions or eat, they don't have to choose whether to pay their mortgage or feed their children, they don't have to choose which bills to pay and which to put off.
They can take as many vacations as they want. They don't have to worry about gas prices and grocery prices. They don't have to worry about retirement and healthcare and wonder if they can afford to retire when that time rolls around.
If they don't like a law or it doesn't benefit them, they can amend or change it.
They are so out of touch with the average person that it's shameful!
I don't ever want to hear them say that they speak for the American people because I am an American and I promise you - they certainly DON'T speak for me.
I believe in helping the needy but NOT funding the lazy.
I DO NOT support the tea party at all and I believe they are the biggest part of the problem! Before them - congress was able to talk and negotiate and agree on policies.
As much as politicians claim to run for office in order to help us, DO NOT believe it! They run for office for one reason and that is POWER! PERIOD!
Shameful, shameful, shameful!!!
