Who really thought this committee would get anything done? One side has their minds set on one way or the high way. Congress’s approval rating is around 8% now. No one has faith in their government. There is no real democracy, the people do not really have a say in anything. With the internet now you would think we do not need senators. We could all vote on every single bill that wants to be passed on now through the internet as citizens. The system of voting for a very few people to represent hundreds of thousands from each state is stupid and not working.
So anyway, this CNN video below of a republican trying to defend this screw up by saying garbage like
“It’s not your job to convince me of anything but to get the information out there” – Republican senator Jon Kyl
to a reporter. That reporter is a damn american citizen why can’t they try to get their voices heard when talking to a stupid congressman? That is why you should not watch the mainstream media anymore. Citizen journalism is real journalism. CNN, Abc, Fox News are all meant to get out information that the powerful want you to know about or to make you look in the opposite direction of the real problems out there. This congressman also said the same old garbage rhetoric that all republicans say to people and some are stupid to believe it. Republics do not compromise.
“Raising taxes will kill job creation” – Republican senator Jon Kyl.
What a load of garbage! Not taxing the RICH does not make jobs you idiots in the republican party. The real reason they don’t want to increase taxes is they are buddies with the rich and they want to make president Obama look bad so they can get their rich republican buddy in there as the president in the next election for president. They also signed a vow not to ever increase taxes. The people in the government do not run the country anyway, the rich do. That is why you see protests like Occupy Wall Street. We need a new economic system and a new government that is for sure. Books get updated, programs get updated, facts get updated. Why can’t the government and economic system be updated when it does not work and is corrupt?
