I wrote about Nancy Pelosi in January of 2013. Before you read this blog, click -- take a peek, skim what I've said about her.
I heard one of the TV prognosticators declaring that very little change can happen in the balance of Congress in the next election, November 2014. "We'll be in for another Republican Congress.
DOING NOTHING! I yelled.
HOLDING UP THE COUNTRY!
Rat- tat tat, I repeated all the grievances that I have been storing up for many, many months.
No action on immigration, gun control, minimum wage. No extension of unemployment insurance. Congress will just push and shove all of it into the same old pile and pretend to negotiate -- grab a few more inches of helpful coverage from fixable healthcare glitches, demand a few more billion for the debt ceiling that gets larger because of they're not doing anything -- we'll keep on paying for the congressional freeze on anything that might help the President succeed in doing what he's trying to do for our country.
Oh my ... I am bone tired of thinking about this. I am tired of complaining.
I am just praying -- yes PRAYING -- "Please God and Nancy Pelosi, find a way to fund, promote the Democrats who are running for Congress and defeat the Republicans.
I pray louder. PLEASE DEAR GOD, GIVE US A CONGRESS THAT WILL WORK FOR AMERICA.
I'll say it again: PLEASE, PLEASE DEAR GOD, GIVE US A CONGRESS THAT WILL WORK FOR AMERICA.
