An open letter to the United States government, October 9, 2013
What are you doing? What are you doing to solve the Government shutdown? With the looming “Debt Ceiling Crisis”, all either side of the aisle is doing is blaming each other with no resolve. No resolve apparently intended. If anyone of you were in our shoes you would be out of a job, fired with no pay for lack of performance.
You are supposed to be a Representative-you are not representing any of us! You are, by definition a &ldquoublic servant “. You are not serving the people, you are in fact self-serving.
While you continue to be paid by us with our hard earned money and have your own federally paid for insurance from our taxes, you are not feeling our pain, and there is nothing we can do about it. Shame on you! This is taxation without representation, the founding principle that was the impetus for starting this Country. I do not believe our founding Fathers framed the constitution with this outcome in mind.
You and you alone, are in a position to change the current situation .I want to know, who among you is man or woman enough to be the first to say “I will not take any pay until both of these situations are resolved”.
We the people, as your employer, are asking you to do your job!
What say you?
P.S. This is not a chain letter and I normally don’t get political and send things like this out,but I am the author and if you are as fed up as I am please pass on to others, go to www.Change.org or what ever vehicle you think appropriate.
Thanks for your time
