Why have a Congress at all if it Ignores Our Needs

28 December 2009 at 11:39:24 AM

Why have a Congress at all if it Ignores Our Needs 
Prolonged Unemployment Rages On --- Why?
In Detroit unemployment is reaching a staggering 50 percent.  The unemployment rate in other states also is escalating dramatically.  Still, our Congress does little to resolve the issue.
Congress has lost its way.  It does NOT act in the best interests of the American community.  Congress has driven a wedge between itself and American citizens.
It should be in everyone's interest to create jobs.  It makes no sense that President Obama and Congress continue to ignore the problem.  Maybe it is merely the ongoing inertia of our Congress? [rhetorical]  Or maybe there are more devious underlying issues?
Our Congress only acts on behalf of wealthy campaign contributors.  As far as legislators are concerned, the rest of us continue to suffer as long as their wealthy special interests have been placated.
Up until now our Congress has ignored our needs.  There are no new jobs being developed and implemented.
Prolonged Unemployment Rages On --- Why?
How hard is it to provide jobs to those American citizens who need and want them?

It would be simple enough to issue tax reduction incentives to businesses who wish to expand their enterprises by providing jobs to unemployed Americans.

Equally, it is easy for the government to develop federal jobs to build, repair, and maintain our depreciating infrastructures, e.g., bridges, tunnels, highways, dams, etc.

So, why are the President and Congress opting to do nothing?  Why continue massive unemployment throughout the nation?

Apparently, the first priority of our Congress is to placate the needs and whims of wealthy special interests who contribute huge campaign dollars.

The unemployed need to contact President Obama and their Congressional representatives and demand jobs.  It is the number 1 priority of this nation to ensure that every American has work.

Bottom-line is that there is no reason for the continuing high unemployment throughout the U.S.  Congress can and should start the chain of events that will cure the massive unemployment problem.  Americans must demand Congress to resolve it.

The only thing Americans can do is for all the unemployed to rise up like a giant Tsunami and demand Congress to resolve the unemployment issue.  Phone calls, letters, emails!  And keep on banging down the doors until it is dealt with.  There is no other way.

Congress is out of touch with reality. It has no idea what's really going on. These people live in a cocoon. Congress is toxic, dysfunctional, obsolete and bought. Something new beyond the two-party system must be created by us, the citizens of this country. But before we can do this, we must come out of our own delusion about what a Democracy really is. We can't just retire into our own little worlds and expect something better to magically happen. We also can't continue to cultivate the extreme polarization that exists within this country. We have a lot more in common with one another than we have differences. It's time to take responsibility for what we are creating.

If you want to engage with our Founding Fathers and learn some history, see the HBO series, John Adams, from David McCullough's novel. You can get it on Netflix. Ii's an inspirational reminder of the vision this country was founded upon.
