The graphic at bottom, taken from a recent Democratic Underground.com blog, illustrates perfectly how misdirected our Tea Party-infested, Republican Party-controlled Congress’s priorities are. It also shows why this destructive and woefully misguided party must be stripped of Congressional control and prevented from occupying the White House after the 2016 elections. They have had control of Congress since January, 2011, and have done nothing to benefit the lives of ordinary working Americans – they have been on the wrong side of every issue, have obstructed all efforts to pass good, beneficial, and sorely-needed legislation like gun safety measures and infrastructure repair, and have failed to stem the tide of both our growing wealth disparity crisis and climate change. Instead, their priorities have included over 50 meaningless votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act, running time-wasting and wholly non-productive Benghazi and Clinton email investigations, attempting to enact ridiculous voter-suppression laws, scheming to pass further unneeded tax cuts for the wealthy (while simultaneously trying to increase spending for an already over-bloated military/industrial complex), and opposing any and all efforts to pass even one further gun-safety measure. They (along with equally misguided corporatist Democrats) have even voted in favor of giving the HORRIBLE Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement “fast track” status, meaning that it must be adopted without congressional debate on any of uts provisions by a mere up or down vote! How any party that claims to be so protective of our national security can turn around and be so cavalier about the very real possibility of foreign corporations obtaining the power to sue this country and overturn any of its laws which may possibly threaten that corporation’s future anticipated profits is WAY off base! These time and money-wasting bandits do not deserve congressional power any longer! Look at this below and then resolve to throw these bastards out of office in November of 2016!
Think about it, friends: are you getting your money’s worth (at roughly $175,000 per Congressperson per year) out of this Tea Party-infested, Republican Party-controlled Congress? Certainly NOT! 😦
