Time to get them all out of office

Why are we getting nothing from the politicians in Washington, when we elected them to run our country?

Makes you wonder doesn’t it?

We all sit here wondering if the money we are entitled to will ever start to flow again, while a bunch of non-caring politicians, who are still getting paid, get another paid vacation, which they have not earned, or will they get up off their whiney baby butts and start thinking about getting our wonderful country back in order, and running again.

I don’t care if you are Democrat or Republican, you can’t be pleased with your party for the way they are doing things.

You can believe that if they weren’t getting paid during this shutdown, that they sure as hell wouldn’t have let this get to the point where it is. They would be getting this thing settled now.

I would urge everyone to think about this “Obamacare” and see the harm it will be doing to our health care system, which does need an overhaul, but not as drastic as that which no one has even been able to understand, because of all the political terminology and rhetoric. What an outrage.

It’s time for us, the American people, to say we have had enough, and vote all these so-called representatives out and get some common people in there who would consider the needs of all the people instead of themselves.

Now we learn that these self-serving, money-grubbing jokes for human beings that give themselves raises in the middle of the night have cut off the funeral expenses and the military insurance payout for our brave fighting men and women, who gave their all, so that these miserable, greedy, self-serving, two-bit politicians can sit on their butts and cry and argue about a bill that no American in their right mind wants because it isn’t worth the paper it is written on, and will raise our health care plan costs 50 percent in some cases in the very near future.

What riles me the most, because I am a veteran, and it should rile everyone too, is how they are treating our wonderful men and women in our military and their families who have given the utmost — their sons and daughters, fathers and mothers.

As I said before, it’s time to stand up and say we’ve had enough, and next election vote them out and get some new members in.

New members couldn’t do any worse job than this bunch that has made our country the laughing stock of the world.
