So if you live under a rock, I thought I would state the obvious for you...
The Congress(House of Reps and the Senate) isn't getting anything done to make our world better... BUT that is overstating it.
The House has been as functional as they can be, and the Senate - well, not so much...
BUT IT GETS WORSE!
On Thursday, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid(Dem from Nevada) suspended all voting for the Senate. Why? Because he didn't want Senator Brown (Rep from Mass) to "use the Senate vote as an excuse" to miss the election year debate against his challenger, Dem Elizabeth Warren.
Basically- the election in Mass stopped all Senate voting, and through that, stopped its business for America.
Seriously! The only reason you are sent to Washington DC is to act on behalf of the American people. NOT to worry about being re-elected, not to put self progress over the progress of America- ever. Your job is to make our country run better. Period.
To make matters worse- America needs leadership now- with Debt crisis, over spending, Tax increase looming, the fiscal cliff, high unemployment, low job creation, foreign policy issues such as Muslim nations, Japan/China, etc- our plate is full and the Senate CHOSE to be out to lunch.
So on Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Dem from Nevada) gave us a perfect moment on how he can not do his job, how that is not his priority, and how November 6th can not come fast enough.
VOTE on Nov 6th- it is the single biggest election of our lifetime!
