The legislators we have serving in Washington are a disgrace. They have no interest in trying to help that person who is out here struggling every day just to keep his or her family going. All they are interested in is power and control so they can serve their own interests.

Obviously, none of the Republicans can make a decision on their own. Their decisions are based on what someone tells them to do. The Democrats are no better, but at least they will make their own decisions, right or wrong.
I wonder when the American people are going to wake up and realize what is going on.
