just another rant …
The 113th Congress is long gone,but it should be noted there were fewer days “in session” than the people they seem to keep saying don’t depend on the government for “entitlements” then voting against them…some Republicans call “them” lazy though some of those are constituents; the nonsense continued with the 114th Congress and now here we are with the 115th Congress. We are being governed by a guy with no political experience; seemingly no sense of real loyalty to what most of us call #AmericanValues, doesn’t seem to be a true republican or a person who leans left, he has said a lot, done little though the executive orders he once hated when President Obama was in office are coming at #WeThePeople hard and will be doing some damage in the near future. This trifecta, aka our government, is now capable of slashing, burning, cutting or leaving good legislation for the people out and holding secret meetings making deals lest we understand or accept that talk is not only cheap … it is being manipulated and so is the truth, oh wait … all this ish is already going on and we are only a couple of months into this and what most of us know as the truth has officially become known as “alternative facts” … sigh
It should make Americans all wonder if $175K for members of Congress is just too much for less than 120 days of work?
Yes, breathe in slowly then slowly release your breath … be still, then repeat the process when needed as insanity in the News, and Politics begins to try and make viewers accept trump in “alternative facts” on loop mode. The idea that Americans should just trust someone in the highest office or a member of Congress on face value is a joke but when you catch their work of “performance art” you see they not only believe what they are saying but assume that no one is paying attention to their behavior on the floor or Congress because they certainly act like it every time they get a chance to be on cable TV.
Congress, led by republicans continue to say one thing while planning take downs in secret rooms and have tossed their title of Public Servant down the nearest sewer. I wonder how we will ever pass VRA, immigration reform and other bills For Americans when a good faith effort is kept off the floor of Congress because of those added poison pill amendments. Again, how childish and how tough is it to understand the Republican Party needs to be more inclusive, though trust, respect and future votes are not seasonal or easily earned nor should they be. It makes a voter wonder, can Republicans stop flip-flopping for just a minute so Congress can get the People’s business done and the tantrums continue. Okay, stop and take a deep breath as we watch all of the talking points… disguised as debates, votes and amendments begin on the floor of Congress.
If you listen to Republicans, they act; remember (act) like they plan to be in bipartisan mode but they have shown themselves to be less than trustworthy less than bipartisan and their votes … proof of how they actually feel cannot be denied or overlooked.
Yes, Congress has taken the time to bring issues they want to vote on without much debate. It is important to call your member of Congress because the Republican tactic to stall or quietly throw poison pills in amendments is happening right this very moment. I ask you to please call your member of Congress and tell them to pass a Climate Change bill, respect reproductive rights, VRA, immigration reform and pass #theAmericansJOBsACT, as all Americans need a path toward Stability not Austerity, which is what Republicans seem to keep pushing.
I want America to wake up, push back, and demand all members of Congress do the People’s business
Republicans see themselves as stewards of the purse strings in the House of Representatives and they are right now, but it does not give them the right to toss #WeThePeople under the bus, who as taxpayers give them a salary and great government health care out to fend for ourselves.
#Midterms will decide what kind of life we all want our next generation to navigate through … please take the time to understand who is causing America to decline … The House holds the American #PurseStrings which is why the #FlintRescueAid, Infrastructure, Budget among a large list have been held hostage
