Our democratic system has broken down and our politicians are responsible for this criminal activity.
Partisan warfare on Capitol Hill continues as our representatives have failed to do their jobs by not raising the minimum wage, not extending unemployment insurance, not dealing with immigration, not serving our veterans... etc.
A true democracy can not truly function effectively as long as the public at large do not trust the institution that should represent them. We are all in big trouble, because very few Americans trust Congress to do the right thing before they go on vacation for over a month.
It will cost US a lot more to address these and many other issues if Congress fails to act before they take their upcoming recess, which will virtually doom many important programs this year. Please contact your elected representatives and ask them... "what have you done for me lately?"
