Letter: Lay off Congress
In Bill Clinton’s second term, the nation’s business was put on hold to conduct impeachment hearings. Having failed to make Barack Obama a one-term president, Republicans are once again scandal hunting. The result is that the economy, immigration and myriad other pressing issues have been placed on the back burner.
Perhaps we could add another budget-cutting item to the sequester and lay off every member of Congress and their staffs until November 2014. Then the American people can replace the do-nothing Congress with people who possess a work ethic.
