You know it really annoys me to no end that MOST of the time I turn on C-SPAN, the chambers are half or more empty. What exactly is it that we elect
them to DO when Congress is in session? It makes it simple for them to pick yesterday for their laundry day or pizza day with the family..or whatever
Congress people do when they simply don't want to listen to the business it's their job to hear?
I think they ought to be made to sit during open session like that and MADE to listen to their fellows, like Cruz in this case. What's the point
otherwise? They openly mock us and laugh in our face when asked to READ something they vote on ...so we know they aren't off reading any bills in
their absence. They just don't show up.
Well, hell, why can't I "just not show up" in a course here I know material for..or can bluff like they do...to pass the exam? Funny.. they are
awfully demanding about that. They seem to think that because I've signed obligations to take the course, I'm suppose to actually attend it to get
the end result.
Wouldn't it be revolutionary to hold Congress to that same standard of showing up, on time, every time and remaining at work for the entire work
day...every day? (they only work a short week to start with, and breaks/vacations with airfare paid regularly..this isn't asking that much I think)
