(Organizing for Action)
It was a One Question Survey:
"What issue are you most excited to hear about in the State of the Union?"
“excited”? I wouldn’t use the word “excited” to describe how I feel about the issue that most concerns me, because I don’t expect the President to even mention this MOST important issue (IMHO) that our entire planet is facing. I would like to hear the President discuss how he plans to implement laws to combat CLIMATE CHANGE (during HIS administration), what with the opposition we face from the Climate Change deniers (i.e. Corporate Shills) who dominate the GOP in Congress.
I wish commentators would remind their listeners more often that not only is the House GOP’s numerous mock-repealings of Obamacare laughable, it is also extremely costly to American taxpayers.
We pay these Congress People’s salaries! How dare they not do what their bosses want them to do when they are “working”? It’s an outrage, when you think about it.
There are 435 Reps, they each earn a Congressional Salary of $174,000 per year. Congress is in session for 126 days, which works out that they are earning $1381/day. Multiply that by 435 reps, and it comes down to costing the American people $507,500 PER DAY.
That’s unacceptable. We have to vote them out.
How to do that? My idea: Democrats, who can afford it, should move to Red States in the year before an election year, and there should be MASS migrations in 2019, to change the demographics for the next census! Easy! Ha ha!
The GOP is demanding to see FIVE YEARS of Chuck Hagel’s financial records.
Conversely, they were perfectly fine with their Presidential Candidate, (Cayman Islands) Mitt, only disclosing TWO YEARS!
