Dear Mr. President & Members of Congress:
At first I ignored the news reports of the rancor. Politics as usual, I figured. But now you all have taken this ugly bi-partisan bickering way too far.
Your job, as you were hired to do it, is to represent the good people of America.
If I performed my job anywhere near the way you all go about performing yours, my boss would boot my butt . But like millions of others, I don’t have a paying job. I lost mine due to the economic fallout of 2008. You do remember that, don’t you?
My point being this economy has been anemic under more than one president. Got that Congress?
Not that that’s any excuse Mr. President. When you said you were going to bring change to this nation, economic collapse was not the change I was hoping for.
I’m fed up with the whole lot of you and your partisan approach to government. We are the people of America. One nation. Under God. Indivisible.
It appears that you all forgot that pledge.
Consider this a warning of sorts. Or a petition, if you must. I’m just saying that you all need do the job you were hired to do. And if you can’t, then I, for one, and I suspect plenty of others, will be more than happy to hand you the pink slip.
If you can’t settle this debt issue, and you put this country at risk of further economic fallout, then every single one of you deserves to be fired.
Good luck collecting unemployment once that happens.
