I am appalled and ashamed at the poor job our congressmen have done in Washington.

The Democrats point the finger at Republicans and Republicans at the Democrats, blaming the other party for their inability to come up with a budget that could be passed to continue the activities and programs so necessary for the people of our great country. If they want to know who is to blame, they need to only look in the mirror and be embarrassed.

Paul said in the Bible, “when I became a man, I put away childish things.” It is time for our congressmen to quit pointing their fingers and get out of the sandbox and do their job and compromise with each other in order to do what needs to be done. No one said it was an easy job, but it is part of their job, and they need to do it now. They should be working 24/7.

If I had done my job the way they did theirs with little progress, and said, “that’s the best I can do,” I would have been out on my ear and replaced very quickly. Have they lost any services? Has their income been furloughed? Well, it should be.

They get an “F” for their efforts. They have not done their job. What have they been hired for? Those whom I can touch, I will remember at the polls and vote accordingly, every one.
