yep, just another rant … Please Vote to keep #BidenHarris intact in 2022! This is a post from 2013 tweaked
The 113th-116th Congress’ are long gone, but it should be noted they were “in session” or “at work” fewer days than most of their constituents, even with the attack of #Covid-19 … the people they seem to keep saying depend on,” the government tit for entitlements,” then without remorse proceed to vote against the 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, 115th, 116th Congress, and now here we are with the 117th Congress. Thank goodness, the 117th Congress is mostly a predominantly Democratic Party. We have a slim but winning trifecta. We all must support trust and push for great policies that help ALL, Not a select few, in America.
Furthermore, we the people were 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 the fact is he has given $$ to both, he said a lot, done little though the executive orders he once hated when President Obama was in office came fast hard and against We The People. His comments for the action are incoherent at times and a lot of those policies will be doing some damage shortly… btw, can somebody tell this to trump voters, who while now possibly are all insurrectionists; most will still reap the benefits the rest of us vote for and that is offensive. The trifecta he held, aka our 3 branches of government, was capable of doing the right thing, but they decided slashing, burning, cutting average voter lives to shreds, stalled CHIP, and holding DACA/Dreamers politically hostage was better for their agenda. This group once called DACA kids #incrediblekids now saying on every platform possible that they are bad folks, illegals, criminals, and murderers. This trifecta government held a lot of secret meetings, 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. The thing is they seem to think the rest of us need 2 maybe 3 jobs, and deserve less social services among some other stupid things like fewer migrant families, though reports are that the Trump administration has requested foreign workers for Mar-a-Lago numerous times a year. I am SMH. While I am not an expert, it is certainly important to know our GDP will suffer if he goes full out to ban the browns and blacks
Yes, it is time to 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 as valid that “alternative facts” are real while the extreme right puts it on loop mode. The idea that Americans should just trust anyone on a news platform and or in the highest office or a member of Congress at face value is a joke especially when 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 hooked up to a mic!
So, again … Congress, if led by republicans will say one thing while in front of the camera while planning a takedown in secret rooms; tossing their titles of Public Servant down the nearest sewer which makes you wonder how we will ever pass the 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.
Who else felt like the era of trump while not over per se, his reign as POTUS felt so much longer than four years
on 1/6/21, the ugly happened
The fact is, the era of trump created misguided, awful people gullible to false misleading information and some were just waiting for this guy to finally arrive. We have seen a lot of divisive behavior since 2016, which makes a left-leaning voter wonder, can Republicans continue on this path, continue to get away with so much, and not pay for the BS that happened in the 2016 or 2020 elections and at the DC Mall? Okay, I don’t know about you, but the number of times I actually had to stop and take a deep breath as we watched the government of trump try to take our country beyond the extreme right rivals the number of times we had to listen to Republicans continue to say one thing in front of the camera while voting the opposite on the floor of Congress. Some of us watched in horror as they acted; remember (acted) like they plan to be bipartisan, but they continued to show 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, folks must 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
– When you’re a rich member of Congress; you tend to say, do as We say Not as we do, and they continue to Vote as they want or get paid to vote NOT the way they sold/ran their campaign on
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?
All elections from here on 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 of Representatives holds the American #PurseStrings which is why Americans have been held, hostage when Republicans are given that task to govern… try leaning left
