As the congressional titans yet again fight for power and to assign blame, we wonder how we, as their employer, can go about firing them. Would any employer put up with workers who fail to accomplish their tasks and who fight with their co-workers?
Well, we had the opportunity to fire them this past November, but we voted more or less to give almost all a second chance. Do we feel that somehow if we keep the same people in office we can expect better results?
The more often we vote them back, the more tenured they feel, the more cozy they become with special interests, the more calcified they become in party ideology. Next election, lets finally resolve to turn over the old stock by voting in anyone new, regardless of party affiliation.
Let’s remind our public servants who their real boss is.
