Letter to the Editor
There’s and old political joke that goes like this. “What is the opposite of progress? Congress!” But that joke has never been more true than it has lately. This is especially true of the Senate. I’m not sure which is worse, that a single senator held up government to settle a political score or the fact that the rest of the senate let him do it. Senators from both parties hold up important legislation and appointments to get their little piece of pork for themselves and their district. America is in big trouble and our elected officials aren’t taking their jobs seriously. “The People” are supposed to be the owners of America. But to these politicians “The People” is little more than a slogan they use in their political ads.
