How can Americans punish bad actors in Congress?
Congressional Republicans have committed great harm to Americans in a host of ways since the beginning of the Obama administration:
- They announced war against the Obama administration beginning on his first day in office of his first term. They persisted ever since.
- They have resisted raising taxes on wealthy Americans after they gave them unearned and undeserved tax breaks during the Bush administration at time when the nation was strapped for cash.
- They resisted paying down the cost of excessive foreign policy that began with an attack on Iraq. Instead they sought to punish needy Americans by taking away programs on which they depend.
- They shut down government, harming 800,000 government workers and their families.
- They insulted veterans, soldiers and seniors, shaking their financial stability.
- They resisted essential calls to transform America way from fossil fuels to renewable energy independence.
- They sought to reduce the Environmental Protection Agency at a time when the planet is at a tipping point and clean air and water are in threatened supply.
- They acted irresponsibly in financial management and have caused China to call for the de-Americanizing of the global economy.
This Congress and principally Republicans in both chambers have committed overt and intentional harm to the Republic, and for that Americans need to exact punishment that includes:
- Not voting for their reelection.
- In some cases, purusing impeachment.
- In all cases, levying public shame on the bad actors.
“Republican obsession against social needs requires immediate treatment
October 16, 2013
Should congressional representatives be treated as criminals or as sickoes?
The American patient (patient being government and citizens) is sick and dying, while some of the members of the “medical” team (aka congressional representatives) are attempting to prematurely unplug those in dire need. That’s the metaphor here.
It is inexcusable and completely unacceptable that those elected to represent citizens are abandoning their responsibility by “defaulting” to let the patients die because we have too many of them?
What should infuriate millions of Americans is that this government is risking timely payment to those on Social Security who needs those checks as if their lives depend upon them, because they do.
This is a breach of contract with Americans. It is intolerable. To many, the angst is torture.
It is not out of the realm of reason to want to round up Congressional representatives and put them under arrest and offer them up for a trial for crimes against citizens? They cannot be permitted to be derelict and get away with it.
Booting them out of office is not enough. They deserve public disgrace and worse if it their motives can be proven to be subversive to the American Constitution and We the People. The behavior of Congress is out of hand and unAmerican.
Consider the following:
How has Congress treated 800,000 loyal government workers?
How has Congress treated seniors and needy persons who are on Social Security and Medicare?
How has Congress treated Americans in need of affordable healthcare?
How has Congress treated veterans and soldiers and their families?
How has Congress treated teachers, emergency and law enforcement professionals?
How has Congress treated the American economy?
The answers are uniformly negative. Bring charges against Congress.”
