NICE!!! Don't get me wrong. I'm not naive enough to think this is first time something like this has been said between politicians but it does give me a nice feeling to know somebody said it to the most arrogant man in Congress, Harry Reid.
Perhaps it's something the American people should tell 90% of Congress during the mid-term election.
It's obvious that you've bought into the negative politics that's tearing our country apart. But it doesn't make me feel good at all. It's unprofessional to me.
The constant bickering and sniping on both sides has been very unprofessional, and it isn't at all why people are elected to office. Our Congress has become a bunch of greedy idiots scrambling for special interest groups - and their money - and ignoring the needs of the people they are supposed to represent.
I think it's time we cleaned up Congress, eliminated the big money from politics by assigning limits to election spending and where the money comes from, and banning politicians from working as lobbyists after they leave office. There are a lot of other limits that could be implemented, too.
Maybe then the politicians could get back to running the country by cooperating, negotiating and compromising where necessary to represent at least the majority of the people.
We then agree to disagree - somewhat. Whichever side seems more or less caring to each of us, I'd like to see our representatives at least act like they have some manners and control of their behavior. They'd all pretty much demonstrated that they don't have control when it comes to adding to their wealth and influence.
Term limits are the answer to giving the power back to the citizens. I found numerous petitions online but wonder how to get this enacted since the ones who benefit from no limits are the ones who must sign this into law? http://termlimits.org/ http://termlimitspetition.com/ http://www.change.org/petitions/term-limit-reform Also the benefits our elected officials have bestowed upon themselves is outright criminal since they have much better retirement and health care than those who support them. How did it get so corrupt?
Of course, we have term limits; however, if a politician wants to be reelected, he/she can subvert the term limits e.g. Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York, who used his influence to be reelected for a 3rd term. Politicians can do whatever THEY want if it serves THEIR purpose.
Brenda, I have sadly come to realize that many politicians view their jobs as a game and a career move. There are very few politicians that are concerned with their contingents. They are after their own good, not the good of the voters. What we need are sincere people who view their office as a service to the people, not self-glorification.
