no more than most industry in this country

I'm just tired of their irresponsibiity, playing craps with the lives of the men and women of this country, insular in that nothing affects them, their contempt of the worry, anxiety, and pain they're causing the public.
And maybe I'm reacting more than normal for me, but I've watched them argue and people here argue and people at work argue and not a damn one of all those argueing hears or learns anything.
I believe you like many have complained over people that work for the public not doing their job, well they're not doing their job, they're getting themselves raises, they can tie up legislature without even showing up for work, and they get gifts from the lobbyists that would put any honest representative to shame.
They are more interested in news time than listening to the US citizenship, most of who want a settlement more than they want any one particular bone of contention.
They make a mockery of the term representative body.
A pox on all their houses. I'd like to see everyone in Congress, the Senate, every single one of them lose their next election. Then at least they can be hired as consultants and lobbyists for the people buying them now, it's be more honest work than claiming they're representing the people. I actually wish every single one of them had to do a physically demanding job for a year, I wish they all had to sit down and decide which bill they would pay this paycheck and which would have to wait for the next one.
And before the assumption is made that is my problem, no, I'm fortunate that I've saved a bit, that I've had decent medical insurance, and that so far I've not been out of work more than 6 weeks in one year. Nor is anyone in my immediate family that bad off fortunately.
But I can face the reality that all who are in such straits aren't there just because they're lazy or hopped up all the time. I'm tired of seeing people that have benefitted from past federal programs saying others don't deserve it.
Every year, it seems we become more a nation of hypocrisy.
