A DO-NOTHING Congress and a House of Representatives, whose real speaker is a radical right-wing senator, not even a member of the House, have accomplished less and hurt the country more over the past six years than any Congress in history. It’s a fact. [John] Boehner is just a puppet, not a leader in any sense of the word, and too concerned about keeping himself in power to worry about the American people. [He is] too willing to be led by the nose by the radical anti-American libertarian wing of his party.
All of this is done to keep the country’s first black president from looking like he had any positive effect. The blatant racism of the Republicans was on full display as they attacked every minority in sight. They certainly did the bidding of the unelected corporations and the John Birch Society’s founding family, the Kochs, and the hate-peddling NRA [National Rifle Association].
Some people say you get the government you deserve. I don’t believe that in an era of bought- and-paid-for politicians. This is certainly not the government I deserve.
If you are tired of this, you must turn out for the midterm election and throw these bums out. Let’s start with Congressmen Mark Meadows and Patrick McHenry.
