What do you think our politicians are doing wrong?
What We Can Do To Make Our Politicians Work?
People are becoming angry at our politicians. And this is for good reason, we have put up with this for a very long time. Our politicians have been "working very hard" to help people in the United States. However, they are doing a horrible job.
Our politicians have made no progress in solving any problems.
They have meetings, but nothing comes out of the meetings.
All they do is fight like children on a playground.
Give themselves high salaries, perfect medical care, and wonderful retirement accounts.
They work for us. We should make them understand that they work for us.
They have done nothing to help us recover from the economic meltdown.
We the people of the United States of America, have elected, and thus hired our politicians. We also have the right to fire them. By voting of course. This means we have the right to decide many important things that will help our economy recover. Here are just a few.
1) We have the right to decide what our politicians should be paid.
They do not have the right to decide what they get paid because
we hired them.
2) If they do not show up for a meeting, or any other order of business,
wage should be docked unless they are ill, or have a legitimate reason for not attending.
3) They should have the same health care that all Americans have.
4) They should have the same Medicare as all Americans.
5) They should work. Simply work.
They work for us. All you have to do is vote. All you have to do to make our politicans work is vote.
This is an update to a previously published hub, but is not published any longer.
But, at this point in time, we are living in a government shut down.
This is not effecting the politicians. The politicians don't have to worry about feeding their children.
The politicians don't have to worry about small business that support their families.
The government shutdown is punishing US, WE THE PEOPLE! Why are they forcing a government shutdown?
At this point in time, people are becoming angry with politicians who are not doing their jobs.
This afternoon, there was a car chase from the White House to the Senate, which ended when the police guarding the Senate shot the driver of the car. By the way, the police guarding the Senate are not being paid. They are working very hard, just not being paid.
This hub is not going to talk about political details. Many other hubs will do that. This hub is only going to focus on emotional issues. Issues which people have to face, because our government is not doing their jobs.
Would any politician ever change if their child had to go to bed hungry?
Hungry children in America
At this point in time, children in the United States wake up hungry, they go to school hungry, they come home hungry, then they go to bed hungry. There are 17 million children nationwide, that is 25% of all the children in this country go to bed without enough food. However, going to bed with an empty stomach is a very complicated issue. It effects the way their bodies fight infection, they get sick more often. Hunger also effects a child's cognitive development, so most of these children never even make it to college.
Will the government shutdown help any of these children? No. Their parents are out of work. Some parents work two jobs, just to put food on the table. Some have to chose which bills to pay this month, just to make sure they feed their children.
Yes, we have gone through a long time, where people have been without jobs and they are slowly coming back, but the government shutdown is making it worse. People are being laid off, problem and problem, the list goes on and on. Do any of them care?
Don't the politicians care about this?
Don't the politicians understand this?
This hub is not about Republicans or Democrats, to be honest they are both worthless.
If only they had a moment to walk a mile in one of these child's shoes. Maybe then they would realize there was a reason, they were elected in the first place.
