Congress should be accountable

To the editor:

I am sure that at this point in the history of our American Republic, one thing stands out. The Congress of the United States of America is nothing more than a group of spineless cowards.

We the people have elected this select group to represent our values and to protect and defend the United States Constitution, as well as uphold it.

Thanks to their inaction to do the job that we hired them to do,we now have a communist wanna-be dictator running roughshod over America and everything that she stands for.

From the day that they take their place in their seats in our government’s three branch system, they start their re-election campaigns. The American people who put them in office have simply been hung out to dry.

How many times has the communist Obama circumvented Congress now in the past four-plus years? Their inaction is very telling as to what the state of our great nation is at this point. They are nothing but spineless cowards. I am sure that the majority of Americans share the same feelings at this point. We are paying for a service that we have not received.

We the people must stand and unite and demand that our “hired help” start doing their jobs.

If this group of do-nothings was hired in the private sector, they would all be on unemployment benefits by now, alongside the millions of Americans they were elected to represent. Instead, they get a lavish lifestyle, insider stock trading deals, large expense accounts and a golden benefits package. All at taxpayer expense.

It’s no wonder why they live in a bubble in the shining city on the hill.

The time has come for the American people to stand up and hold these people accountable. We need to give them a choice.

Stand up and do your jobs, or you’re fired. Enough is enough.
