Man is fed up with Congress

If five to 10 percent of voters sign a petition for referendum on term limits it must be put on the ballot. We also need one to do away with congressional pensions — maybe even form a new government, because this one can’t get anything done. 

The House of Representatives has wasted money fighting the Affordable Care Act. Talk about waste. Now they are trying piecemeal bills to try and defund the health care bill. The House has fought everything President Obama has tried to do.

Republicans cry about the debt. Most was caused by two wars under former President Bush. Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell is scared of the Tea Party. He and John Boehner don’t want to tax the rich because they are part of that group. Most in the congress are rich from lobbyist money to sway their vote. This is not the will of the people. They could care less about us. They are like a bunch of gangsters robbing the middle and lower class. 

If they paid into Social Security, it would be more solvent. Let the rich pay more, for they are the ones getting most of the laws passed for their benefit. If they don’t do the job, vote them out.

There should be a limit of two terms in the House and one in the Senate. That way they won’t be there long enough  to become corrupt.

The Keystone Pipeline they say will create 43,000 jobs. But the Jobs Bill will create 12 million jobs. Quit giving our tax money to countries who are trying to kill us. Put that money back into Social Security.
