When Congressman Boehner said that in order to get the money to the catastrophically effected areas from Hurricane Irene, there needed to be equal spending cuts. Are you kidding me??? Areas in desperate need of disaster relief have to wait for Washington bickering to do something? Really??? Since when did the government toy with helping the American people? I know. Since Obama became President of the United States of America. That has driven Republicans and Blur Dog Democrats nuts.
If just one member of Congress had the integrity, courage, and righteousness to say "until we help the American people, I will not take vacation, healthcare, or salary. I don't want to be a hypocrite and vote for or against a bill that doesn't effect me at all. I will stand tall and do the right thing not just be an obstructionist. I will come to the table and try to come to an agreement for all people, not just the people that donate to my re-election campaign." It is a pipe dream. Never going to happen, but the gall of any elected official to stand in the way of any deal and not negotiate for the betterment of all, is just unconscionable.
That is unpatriotic.
