|While most of the country lives in fear for the welfare of their families and even their lives our esteemed representatives continue to do what they do best.....
While banks continue to fail and financial institutions shut down those who are in charge of running our country do not appear to have any sense of urgency when it comes to our current economic situation.
There latest excuse is that the current plan is not good for the country.
When is the last time that any of them asked any of us what we needed or wanted?
These Representatives, and I use that term very loosely, are the same people who are so fiscally prudent that our country's current deficit is $9.7 trillion.
And they are going to decide what is best for us.
Do you realize that if Congress was a bank or a financial institution that they would be in need of a bailout.
But even though they have shown repeatedly that they think they have an open check book they will not move on the current plan unless their individual agendas are met.
Damn the people, damn the country this is all about them.
The same people who do not have to worry about their jobs as their is always a lobbyist position waiting when their constituents get fed up.
The same people who do not have worry as their pensions are guaranteed and they will never need Social Security.
Are the people who say they feel our pain.
And our two illustrious candidates, who keep talking about change, are no better.
And the only change we are going to wind up with is the change in our pockets after our last dollar is spent.
Do you realize that over a billion dollars will be spent on the upcoming elections.
A billion dollars that could have been to much better use for education, veteran benefits and a slew of other things.
But Congress will continue to grandstand and showboat while not taking any responsibility for the situation we are in.
And more banks will fail and more people will lose their life's savings as Congress will continue to do what they do best
For it seems that in Congress for every action there is equal and opposite inaction.
And so even though they haven't asked for it I am going to give them a piece of advice from John F. Kennedy
"There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction"
Hopefully some of them will heed his advice and "CHANGE" their minds.
We can only hope
