Do Your Job Congress - Petition


US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Congress, Petition, Do Your Job, hurt economy, do nothing, work for the people )

- 125 days ago - petitions.moveon.org
The Republican Congress has vowed to do nothing every since President Obama was elected. Their tactics have shut down the government, delayed the return of a strong economy, and hurt the American people.

Barbara K. asked me to place this one for her. I hope it's the correct link.

The cartoon is correct.... most worthless Congress ever. I just hope we fire a good many of them this November.

What GOP has not done bills on: Climate change, Tax pollution, jobs, affordable living wage, human rights, women's rights, and lower the rates for higher learning, and education and many more.

If the job is passing legislation that benefits the oligarchs, then it would appear, unfortunately, that Congress is doing its job all too well.

I doubt it will really help, but I signed the petition anyway. We need to raise more hell - and the best way to do that is to kick as many of those bums out of Congress as we can!

The Republicans are destroying this country. They have done nothing but oppose President Obama at every turn ever since he became president way back to his first term. And then all these brainwashed idiots out there are blaming Obama for everything wrong with the country. Do they have amnesia? It was Bush, under the tutelage of Cheney, who got us at war in Iraq, to begin with. And where are the WMD? You can't tell me a lot of the animosity, and undeserved mind you, against Obama, has nothing to do with his being black. It does, and how pathetic is that?! I voted for him both terms, and I'm not sorry, the man inherited a mess and when he has tried to clean it up, the Repuglicans oppose him at every turn. A-holes, bent on destroying this country, all the while stuffing their pockets. How sad is that?
Thanks, Sheryl.

Do nothing, get no re-election!
The Republican Congress' obstruction and "do nothing" attitude is an ideological war against the American people and seditious.

Mitch McConnell already has a plan, in writing, should the republicans take the Senate this fall, of exactly how he and his cohorts will shut down America's government if they do not get their way and shut off all government programs aiding our poor, our poor military veterans, along with imposing theocratic principles into law and, of course, making our rich, richer. That document ought be the entire Democratic party's platform, opposition of each and every point Mitch is insisting on. Let the people choose between the goals of Mitch and his evil friends and the goals of expanding the American dream to all Americans espoused by the Democratic party. I'll take that race on every day, see which side the American people prefer when they are laid side by side and compared. The republican party is as morally bankrupt as is Mitch McConnell. And they've already proved that. Want more of what we've seen the last four years? Then vote for Mitch and his minions. If not, send them home permanently.

Sorry Barbara that I placed the wrong link on.....I wrote to you behind the scenes, so I don't need to repeat the one arm paper hanger story to the crowd. Phew....and a freakish storm and loss of power on top of it all. Here is the live link to the petition Barbara had asked me to place on for her. So please check out both petitions.
Arrest and Try House GOP Leadership for Sedition
I knew it was something along the lines of not doing their job.....I guess I got the wrong link when I lost what was sent.

Signed both. I find it a little sad that even we who should know better talk about a useless "Congress," or even a useless "House." when we need to be talking about useless REPUBLICANS. There are many good Democrats in the House who are working very hard for us indeed - with very little result, but that's not their fault.
