I find it deplorable that the Republican Tea Party led Congress has seen to it to shut down out government to stop a law that they have voted on over 40 times. Is this really the government that we want to have? Is this really the views of our country and this District? Steve Southerland says that he is doing the will of the people. On his government supplied website he says:
“The House is again acting in accordance with the will of the American people,” said Southerland.
He claims on his site that it is the will of the people that he is doing this, trying to delay the law of the land. Is this the kind of leadership that we want to have representing us? It is a statistical fact that the panhandle, this district, is one of the poorer in all of Florida and yet it would seem that from his point of view that we have no problems. Many in the State Capitol and in Washington seem to think that everything is just fine, that is if they get rid of everything Obama. I know that they hate the man, if they didn’t they would “try” to work with him as a Congress is supposed to work with a President.
This congress has one of the lowest approval ratings in the history, the entire history of our nation and they think it is fine. Our leaders have no grasp of what it is to have to struggle day in and day out just to put food on the table and yet they attack the very things that would give people hope and a chance to better themselves. The vast majority of people want to work and have an income. They really don’t want to live off the government no matter what these children in Washington might think or tell you.
It is time that we take back our government from the hands of those that would try and destroy it just to criticize and demonize a president. I know that it is in the best interest of the people to have a functioning government that is looking after the best interests of the country and doing this shut down over a law they failed to kill in session over 40 times and even lost in the Supreme Courts.
Grow up Congress or get the hell our and let us who care about this country and its people take the lead since it is blatantly clear that you do not have the will or ability to do so. Mr. Southerland, look around you past your own party and see the pain and poor that are just beyond your door.
I am pissed at how childish that this Congress is being and am determined to try and do something about it. If you too are pissed at them and want to see a change than it is time to start supporting those that have been there and not just those with the most damned money to burn that seem to not care about those that they are supposed to represent. If congress and our representative feel this is an inaccurate portrayal then I challenge them to prove it with deeds instead of just words and rhetoric.
