Congress needs new blood in there, and not just ones with degrees from Ivy League schools, but ones that have lived in the working class. The
perspective is so warped, sheltered from the walls of the capital that it does not see what the reality of the weight of the decisions really have on
the people of our nation.
I know when Obama was running, he claimed to be of the poor class while growing up. That's good and all, but he seems to have forgotten all about that
time and any struggles had.
I think new requirements for those running is that they MUST MUST MUST MUST live for one year at a min wage job, with fluctuating hours like we all
get (25-30 hrs a week since NO one gives 40 any more) with NO access to any other money and no help from anyone else until they absolutely need it.
And even then it has to be help via govt aid and NO special treatment just because they're running or are voted in. For real. Take a walk on this side
of the tracks for a year and THEN when they're a President, Senate or a HoR, then they'll know what it's like, remember and start prioritizing where
things should be.
Just musing here really. I know some will tear this apart and others will agree somewhat or fully but hey. I'm just putting that out there at any
rate. Kind of tired of the Republicrats, to be honest.
