Thank You Congress..For leaving us waiting

It seems that our elected officials are more concerned about themselves and staying in office
than they are about the rest of the country. Just another slap in the face, punch in the stomach to all of America.

Instead of adjourning on October 8 as we all thought they would, low and behold they all made a big dash out of town on Thursday. Leaving the country in a lurch, they did pass a stop gap spending bill to keep things running for now.

Family care, child care, child nutrition and any and everything to do with our military and our veterans will have to wait until the lame duck session starts on November 15. Nothing was done about the tax cuts from the Bush era; which are due to expire at the end of the year, Democrats wanted to avoid lengthy debates.

As they come home and ask you to vote for them remember how they have held the country ransom. Do they deserve our vote? Is this the way to show Americans what is just and right? How can they
return to their home state and just leave so many important issues unanswered?

OK, they believe they can continue to pull the wool over our eyes, but stand up America tell these
men and women who are supposedly doing what is best You Have To Do Better.

It is hard to believe that these men and women who we voted for in the past to set the ship aright, now are jumping out of town to further their own desires; and apparently not caring what "Joe the plumber", or any of us think.

We can only hope that the next Congress will be more in tune with our country's needs. What we need
is more than just promises, we need action; and someone who will say Enough Is Enough!
