Reality check: There’s some sore losers in the House of Representatives
Good Day World!
Post election reality check – no senators were inspired by voters’ desire for problem solving and cooperation. Fact; nothing is new under the sun - or in Congress - as the partisan clowns have re-emerged divided and as obstinate as ever.
Did we really think it would be any different? As the country teeters on the brink of a fiscal cliff our elected morons haven’t learned a thing from this past election. It’s hard to believe they even give a damn about most Americans. Ideology has been the refuge of the stupid and elitists since the first forms of government awkwardly emerged among civilizations.
The obstructionists, aka the ideology-driven, are threatening the core of our great democracy today. Right now. What we need now are reality-driven politicians who actual respond to the real needs in America today. Politicians who will prioritize rebuilding our infrastructure and not that of third-world countries who just end up hating us.
It’s not too late. If your Congressman is one of those ideology-driven drones then it’s time to let him/her know that’s not what you want. Start a Twitter or FaceBook campaign sending him/her the message loud and clear. That’ll get their attention.
Perhaps this is the moment President Obama has been waiting for – he has the opportunity to use his popularity to pass a budget in spite of the fiery rhetoric being exchanged in the House and Senate. This country needs to move on. It remains to be seen if we’ll be able too. – Dave Stancliff
