These pages provide ample evidence that I’m not a big fan of the current Congress. These pages also show that I criticized both sides of the aisle, thus I suspect many people will agree with this post – then again, I know the partisans won’t because they are want they are – biased by definition. So let me set the stage for my proposal.
I’m tired of Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, John Boehner, and Rick Cantor. I’m equally tired of Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, and their lieutenants.
I’m tired of the bully pulpit approach used by the Congressional Democrats; yet I’m also tired of the Republican obstructionist approach.
I’m tired of the members of Congress who don’t have the guts to vote against their party’s position.
I’m tired of more effort going into finger pointing blame than going into finding solutions.
I’m tired of Congress attaching pork to bills.
I’m tired of Congress’s continual failure to attack big issues with a defined purpose.
I’m tired of the Party First attitude trumping the country’s needs.
I’m tired of the effect lobbyists have on Congress.
I’m tired of Congress attaching amendments to a bill that is unrelated to the bill’s premise.
I’m tired of members of Congress who withhold support until they get something for home.
I’m simply tired of Congress. Unfortunately, I can only vote for three of the 465 members: my one representative and my two senators.
I know my forthcoming question is unconstitutional, but it is worth asking. If there was a national referendum to vote every member of Congress out, how you vote?
Remember, every means everyone … not everyone but, or everyone except. Everyone, including those representing you and those that you respect.
