The elected members of the executive branch and Congress have once again completely ignored the requests of their constituents. Social Security checks may be delayed. Funding on various government contracts has stopped.
Tens of thousands of federal employees are on furlough along with many people who work on government contracts. These people will now be applying for unemployment. This will cost many millions of dollars. Who will pay for this, the taxpayers?
This country is run by lawyers and it should be run as a business by people who are experts in business, not experts in double talk and rhetoric. My solution is to remove all of the people who have been elected to the Congress and the executive branch of our federal government at the next election and replace them with people who have proven that they can run a business.
Unfortunately, there is the old adage: "The ones who are smart enough to run for office are smart enough not to."
