Pretty much everyone who knows me knows that I am a deep thinker, that my mind is seldom at rest. I obviously have lately been thinking of our government and how it functions, (or doesn't function).
Our government is comprised of 435 members of the House, 100 Senators, and 1 President and 1 Vice President. Consider for a moment what we pay these people to represent us and make decisions supposedly for the benefit of all equally.
Now consider how our government has functioned for the past 8 years. Pure Gridlock! Very little accomplished to benefit the public in general, because the Republican Party made a conscious decision to block or stymie everything that President Obama proposed, even if they proposed it first and he decided to back it.
Now, back to my point. We probably spend nearly 1.5 million dollars per Representative with staff and all, and more for Senators. Which probably amounts to over a billion dollars a year just for the Congress. What have we gotten for that money?
A totally dysfunctional body of people who cannot see their way clear to compromise on anything, which means that we have wasted $8,000,000,000 to gain nothing. And somehow they all leave Congress as millionaires. Get the picture?
We have a do-nothing person in the Oval Office whose chief goal is to travel to his golf courses and play golf, which by the way has already cost us over $140,000,000. If I were spending that kind of money to play golf, I sure as hell wouldn't be doing it at a Trump property.
If you think for a moment that you are getting something in return for all that money, you are sadly mistaken.
Don't you think it's time to say I've had enough and say that this experiment with allowing the Republicans to be in charge of all 3 branches of government has failed, for about the second or third time. TRICKLE DOWN DOES NOT WORK! It never has and it never will! Lock that in your brain and repeat it every day.
TRICKLE. DOWN. DOES. NOT. WORK.
