Congress wraps up session

Now they get to come back and tell us what a GREAT job they did (if only it wasn't for the other guys). Couldn't they really boil all the elections down to the following slogans:

Incumbent Rep/Sen.: Our Congress would have been better if the [name of opposite party] was more rational.

Opposition Rep/Sen: The [name of opposite party] is irrational, we need to get more control in order to pass the right laws.

Tea Party: Both parties stink. Have some Tea.

And they're out! Congress flees DC to campaign - Yahoo! News

Re: Congress wraps up session

it really pisses me off how much money and time is spent campaigning vs actually working for the people. The system is seriously flawed. The thing that pisses me off the most is the fact important problems are put off, delayed because of possible impact to the elections. Problems like immigration, energy policy get pushed to the side which need to be addressed...both sides are equally guilty

Re: Congress wraps up session

what pisses me off is how much time "working for the people" is simply arguing non-issues and bringing other peoples money into a Rep/Sen's district. Political jobs did not start out as full time affairs, and we could live with a federal behemoth that took time to actually work in the world rather than in the stratified environments of DC.

Don't worry, they have time for the REALLY important stuff:

Saw back to back smear ads last night. Dino is a Wall Street crook. No, Murray is a K Street crony. Unbelievable. And with the new supreme court ruling I'm noticing see a huge up-tick in third party attack ads.

I really think this BS keeps people away from the polls. It's a huge turn off for me and really has me not giving a F about the upcoming elections. I'm not even sure I'm going to bother voting. It's always SSDD no matter who's in office.

Re: Congress wraps up session

Ive never voted before and doubt i ever will... In my opinion if you vote republican or democrat youre enabling everything you hate about US politics.

The sad part is that these guys are on the verge of breaking all records by spending 3 billion on ads this year...I saw an ad the other day telling me to "Vote No On 1098" and it's paid for by "Vote No On 1098."

Lots of crap to weed through but at the end of the day you as a voter have to do your homework and if you truly don't like any candidate then don't vote.

No I have not because it goes against my nature. There are degrees of lesser of two evils. If they are equally shady, I won't vote. I mean, if I agree with one candidate 12% of the time and the other 11% the time I'm not voting. If on the other hand I agree with one candidate 50% of the time and the other 11% of the time I will vote for the candidate I agree with 50% of the time.
