Congress, Go Home

February 14, 2014

Back in 1963 when John F. Kennedy was president, the entire legislative branch of the U.S. government only cost $192 million, but in 2008 the legislative branch is projected to cost a whopping $4.8 billion. Adjusting for inflation, the cost of the entire Congress has been rising 3 times faster than the price level, yet the number of members has remained static — thank goodness — at 435 representatives and 100 senators, for a total of 535.


Let’s face it, if you’re not going to do your jobs maybe the best thing to do is for you to pack up your bags and return to what most of us call “real life”.  You are a disgrace to the institution both individually and together.

GO HOME.  Admit that the President no longer needs to consult you and put an end to this farce.
