Article first published as Congress Feeds Voters Baloney While They Eat Steak. on Technorati.
Our overworked Congress decided to end the session without accomplishing their stated agenda. No matter the economy is in a state of ruin, people are losing their homes and jobs are still leaving the country faster then we can create them. Let the debts pile up. Let’s forget about renewable energy for a little while longer. Let’s forget about campaign financing. None of our legislators really want to talk about unemployment. They want to go home, run for election, take a little break and grill some steaks. Working on controversial legislation would only confuse the little people, the voters; you know… US.
The good news is; they did pass a stopgap funding measure to insure government could keep on operating. After all, they cannot buy their steaks without a paycheck. The government’s salaried employees need their steak too, so the funding measure just had to pass. Wonder of wonders, the GOP agreed. Strange, our leaders can actually cooperate when both political parties benefit.
Isn’t it odd how they refuse to work together when the people or the country would benefit. I thought, and maybe I am a bit naive, that we elected them to work for US. Well, without a doubt, they are going to tell US all of the wonderful things they will do when they, or their friends, are elected.
That’s the baloney they plan to feed US.
