Ya know what. I agree with you on one point.
It is not only "shameful" it's disgusting that the leaders of failed businesses come hat in hand for a bail out, from me.
Their business models are failures. Their managers inept. Their forward thinking went no farther than today.
Those same leaders and managers setting their own raises and bonuses and handwoven golden parachutes!
"Shameful" a much milder term than I would use. I wouldn't be shocked to hear that you called, "Bullshit!" just as I do.
Ya know, it kinda reminds me of the crew you just signed on to lead.
When was the last vote of the public to give a raise to the House or Senate? Been a while?
How long ago was there a session with 100% attendance and voting? Been a while?
Those people are Public Servants not Demi-Gods. Someone should remind them of that. Like, maybe their Leader. O' that would be you.
Realistically I know that you do not hold the power to implement my suggestions but you can get the ball rolling. Or, at least help.
Eliminate self regulated raises.
Require attendance. Or at least hold them accountable for their absences. (Junkets to Shangri La or Fact finding in the Alps don't count.)
Put them on a random drug and alcohol testing program.
Implement a 5 year ban on Servants becoming Lobbyists and vice versa.
Eliminate all one on one financial interaction between Servants and Lobbyists. Lunch? Dutch. Etc.
I could (and will) go on. The "Let's Bail Out Failed Businesses and Print More Money Package"? What are you thinking?!
I did not vote for you but you are my President. I do wish the best for you and yours (which now includes me and mine.) Start from the top down and let's get this thing back on track.
