I would like to know why these senators are in office. When elected, they swear an oath to the Constitution and the United States of America. Yet, they have also made an oath to Grover Norquist, who is not a member of Congress. He is a private individual and his oath means more to them than the oath they made when they became senators.
I've heard Mitch McConnell say his only object is to make sure Pres. Obama does not serve a second term. That is against the Constitution. If he doesn't like Pres. Obama, that is his business, but he still swore an oath to support the United States of America and Pres. Obama was elected by a huge majority. His oath, and that of all the other Republicans, supersedes his dislike of Pres. Obama. If he's not prepared to live up to his oath, then he should resign. And, if other congressmen prefer to let the government go into the toilet than work with the president, then they need to resign. And, if they won't, then they should be impeached.
This government is at a standstill while the Republicans in the House make a mockery of their jobs of writing or rewriting bills. Congress says they will not raise taxes on the rich, but according to Sen. Hatch, they will still raise taxes on the middle class and the poor. They want to do away with Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Of course, they will not do away with their health insurance, retirement or their salaries, which are in the area of $300,000 while they sit on their hands and say they signed an oath with Grover Norquist.
There are some who want to limit the terms of the Supreme Court. I am in favor of that! The court gave an opinion that corporations and private businesses can donate money to candidates without revealing where it is coming from. And, to hear Mitt Romney say that corporations are people does not impress me.
When is Congress going to return to being for the people of the United States?
