OK. 2018 is a big election year for many in House and Senate. With that in mind, think back over the last 10 years and if your elected officials have not done their job, then vote them out of office. By the way both parties are at fault, so no bias at all here.
Here is an example of not doing their job: Every year they have a duty to pass a budget. They have the whole year to work out the details of said budget, and every year they take it down to the wire. Every year they try, or do, tie into the budget all types of items that have nothing to do with the budget whatsoever. They then point the finger at the other, blaming each to be the problem as to why it was not passed.
When you vote this year, let the lame individuals know by sending them down the road — by replacing them — that you will no longer stand for the status quo of not doing their jobs as elected to do.
