Congress Has Failed Us

I am not saying that the Republicans have failed.

I am not saying that the Democrats have failed.

I am saying that our Congress has failed. They have failed drastically.

I have a suggestion.

Let the Democrats have a chance to move us toward prosperity again.

I would like to see all members of both houses of Congress who are not Democrats cease to obstruct efforts by the President and his party in Washington.

For the next year I'd suggest that they simply vote present on all matters to come up for a vote.

They would no longer be branded as obstructionists and Lord only knows, it might work.

The United States of America is virtually bankrupt.

We've got to try something new.

Just about everything that Congress has done for most of the past forty years has simply added to the debt.

Our dollar is growing ever weaker in the world.

This is a simple thought and I know there will be those on this blog site who will scoff at it.

Time is running out folks.

To vote "present" is consent to continue with the last four years failed policies. It is very easy to brand the Republican party as obstructionist when we don't look into the facts of the current proposals. There are some "present" policies that were voted against due to no way to fund except raising taxes; obama care is a perfect expample. They claim they will fund with savings from the medicare program. You would think that he would go a year to gage whether this is going to be viable. That's ok folks, that is not the only place the funding is going to come from. It is going to come from the people who have already been contributing. "Present" is not the solution, developing bipartisisn bills that are viable for the long term and able to finance with out increasing the debt. At the end of the day TOT your blog hit it on the head:

"Congress has failed us"

Congress is comprised of both parties, until both parties can unite for America, the fiscal cliff is not too far off. That is the current presidents challange, unite the country, unite the parties. Until that happens.....

Ron Paul Departs With ‘Our Constitution Has Failed’

Rep. Ron Paul, the iconic libertarian congressman from Texas, has delivered what will most likely be his final address to Congress.

In a sprawling, 52-minute speech to the House chamber, Paul lambasted U.S. government, politicians and special interests, declaring that the U.S. people must return to virtue before the government allows them to be free, and that the Constitution has failed to limit the scope of an authoritarian bureaucracy.

“Our Constitution, which was intended to limit government power and abuse, has failed,” Paul said. “The Founders warned that a free society depends on a virtuous and moral people. The current crisis reflects that their concerns were justified.”

Congress continues to pass legislation that is contrary to the best interest of The People it represents. Choose a link below to examine how Congress has passed legislation that has fail to protect your best interest.

The Center for Responsive Politics as noted on it’s website www.opensecrets.org, found that in 2011, 12,600 lobbyists spent $3.30 Billion buying access and influence in the halls of Congress.

Just a parting shot... We as Americans also have a duty to act accordingly. We are a country divided; at the lowest level we need to unite and support each other. We always say we do not want government invloved in our daily lives. I close with the infamous quote for JFK:

"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what can you do for your country"
