THE LAST WORD:
An item Kate Ackley at Roll Call’s BELTWAY INSIDERS blog quotes from a recent report by the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Commission on Political Reform
“The commission decries the inordinate amount of time that members of Congress spend raising money and worry about the effects of such fundraising on the legislative process,” the report stated. “In particular, we fear that the need to raise ever-increasing amounts of campaign funds is crowding out the time that members have to engage in legislating and government oversight, the job they were sent to Washington to perform.”
The post is titled “Who Has Time for Legislating Anyway?”.
Clearly the number one priority of the idiots in Congress is getting re-elected, and getting other members of their party elected or re-elected, and not legislating and government oversight – “the job they were sent to Washington to perform”.
