Our objective is to have a Congress that makes wise use of its constitutionally delegated powers, facing problems squarely and implementing timely solutions.
For the most part, our present congresspersons aren’t problem solvers, and that’s killing us. If they were problem solvers when they were first elected, they have long since succumbed to the pressures and temptations surrounding them. Noting any list of the huge problems in front of Congress, we can see the need to attract people who are problem solvers. We must have congresspersons that get their inner rewards from doing a hard job well rather than from having a powerful and lucrative career. A new congressperson has the right to feel that he (also meaning she) will be influential early in his congressional service, thereby playing a significant role in solving America’s problems.
We citizens of America have the ultimate duty and authority to make the necessary corrections. We must do it!
