yep, just another rant … Please Vote2018MidtermsMatter
The 113th Congress is long gone,but it should be noted they were “in session” or “at work” fewer days than most of their constituents … the people they seem to keep saying depend on the government “tit” for “entitlements” then without remorse proceed to vote against average voter and their lives … some Republicans call “average voter” their constituents lazy and these constituents continue to vote against their best interests? I still cannot understand this. The nonsense continued with the 114th and 115th Congress and now here we are with the 116th Congress. We the people, 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 though fact is he has given $$ to both, he has said a lot, done little though the executive orders he once hated when President Obama was in office are coming at We The People hard, fast incoherently and a whole lot of those policies will be doing some damage in the near future … btw, can somebody tell this to trump voters. The trifecta he holds, aka our 3 branches of government, is capable of doing the right thing but they have decided slashing, burning, cutting average voter lives to shreds,stalled CHIP and holding DACA/Dreamers politically hostage; once calling them #incrediblekids now saying on every platform possible that they are bad folks, illegal, criminals and murderers. This trifecta government holds secret meeting, seemingly making secret deals constantly lest we understand or accept that all of this talk is not only cheap … The truth is being manipulated and what most of us know as the truth has officially become known as “alternative facts” … sigh
What happened to Congress?
It should make Americans all wonder if $175K for members of Congress is just too much for public servants that work less than 120 days a year as members of congress,led by Republicans. Thing is they seem to think the rest of us need 2 maybe 3 jobs, deserve less social services among some other stupid things like less migrant families though reports are that the trump administration has requested foreign workers for maralago numerous times a year ..smdh and I am not expert but the GDP will suffer if he goes full out ban the browns and blacks
Yes, breathe in slowly and 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 the trump era in “alternative facts” land put 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 that looks like “performance art” seeming not only like they believe what they are saying but assume that no one is paying attention to their behavior on the floor of Congress because they certainly act like we all have amnesia every time they get a chance to be on cable TV.
So, again … Congress, led by republicans continue to say one thing while in front of the camera are planning take downs in secret rooms tossing their title of Public Servant down the nearest sewer which makes you wonder how we will ever pass Voters Right Act, immigration reform and other bills For Americans when a good faith effort is kept off the floor of Congress because of political competition and poison pill amendments added. There was a time when we would tell the Republican Party they need to be more inclusive because trust, respect and future votes are not seasonal or easily earned nor should they be. The current republican party has many leaving stating this party is no longer worthy … due to white nationalism or something even worse.
The fact is, in this era of trump we have seen a whole lot of divisive behavior which makes a left leaning voter wonder, can Republicans continue on this path, continue to get away with so much and not pay for it in 2018 or the 2020 elections? Okay, stop and take a deep breath as we watch this current government try to take our country to the extreme right and as 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 … Please check any and all republican members voting records! This is proof of how they actually feel about constituents that cannot be denied or overlooked.
Republicans have been waiting for a trifecta that allows them to vote and pass bills without hearings or much debate. So, It is important that folks call your member of Congress because the next generation is counting on us because climate change is real,Women deserve reproductive rights, the voting rights act should be permanent, immigration reform and a real jobs act is the American path toward Stability not Austerity though Republicans seem to keep pushing or that 2007 financial collapse just didn’t impact them enough
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, but it does not give them the right to toss #WeThePeople under the bus, who as taxpayers give them not only a salary but government healthcare?
Midterm2018 will decide what kind of life we all want our next generation to navigate through … please take the time to understand what and who is causing America to decline at this time … The House holds the American #PurseStrings which is why Americans have been held hostage
