Government


Ought to be illegal to hijack nation

I find it very disgraceful that our elected officials drafted a law that allows these lazy, inefficient individuals any salary when they gridlock our economy and shut our government down.
We the People have had enough of the betrayal, lies and scams that Congress pulls on America -- I believe no member of Congress, the Senate, the House, or executive branch should legally be allowed to collect any benefit during any shutdown -- it's purely criminal!
We are being robbed by our elected officials -- and its a shame we lay down and bow to crooks-criminals-liars-frauds!
I'm for having any federal judge issue arrest warrants for them hijacking our government! It ought to be a felony for them to do this to our nation -- they are destroying the image of America. Shame on all of congress. If they refuse to do their job -- resign and turn over their lavish benefits for playing dumb at our expense and for disgracing America!
That's my opinion!
