The US government is so screwed up, it doesn’t seem to know which end is up. Washington has finally settled the debt ceiling, a short term budget, which end on January 15, and the debt ceiling ends on February 7.
For 16 days, a certain amount of federal employees didn’t get paid, national parks closed, but in those 16 days, both houses of Congress collected their pay checks. This is not right, and they should be ashamed of themselves, for accepting those checks.
Come next January, we’re supposed to go through with this bullshit again, and probably another three months after that.
It’s maddening at what goes on down in DC. It’s one big Dysfunctional Family, and many other foreign countries must be scratching their collective heads, at what the hell is going on.
Since the government is shut down, for the second time in the last 17 years, the people who are so supposed to represent us, the Congress and the Senate, should have their pay reduced. They should get the minimum wage, which is around $8.00 an hour, pay for their own health insurance, and no more than two weeks vacation.
The people who are supposed to be working for us, get away with a lot of bullshit, and could care less about what is going on. True, there are some good people in both houses of Congress, but there the ones who can’t seem to drill it into the so called Tea Party nuts of the Republican Party. These clowns think they can do just what the hell they feel like doing, and that is putting the screws to ordinary people, who have to work, or don’t work, because of different reasons.
How would they like it, if they was paid the minimum wage?
It’s time for them to stop nit picking, and get real.
