Washington Elected Officials Shift Allegiance to Foreign Governments


If you had to choose between feeding your kids and feeding the neighbors’, which ones would you choose to feed first?

Silly question of course!

 

Not so for the Officials you’ve elected to represent you in Washington, D.C. They have been debating, agonizing even to extend unemployment benefit for you and others who’ve been out of work for a while now. The agony they have to go through is beyond description: Devin Nunes, GOP Rep. of California said, “it will encourage unemployment”; another agonizing GOP Rep, Joe Heck of Nevada stated that “We don’t want to pass something just for the sake of passing it if it’s not going to have any impact on those it’s meant to help.” Maybe the soothing voices of the unemployed could help alleviate the sufferings of the legislators in Washington?

Other elected officials expressed the sad reality of lack of money to pay for the unemployment extension benefits but could easily find $1 billion dollar to send to the Ukrainian government. The actions of the elected officials in Washington make it crystal clear that their allegiance is NOT to the people of America – who deserve no better than lip service, I added that. I couldn’t resist – but rather to Ukrainians – and others – . I have yet to locate Ukraine in the US Map or anywhere nearby.

 

Close by however, in Mississippi, Louisiana, West Virginia and yes other states across the United States, more than a quarter of the population cannot afford to eat. As of this writing there are hundreds of thousands of people in the United States of America who cannot afford a single meal; there are hundreds of thousands of people who cannot afford College education; there are hundreds of thousands of people who sleep on the streets; there are hundreds of thousands of people who cannot afford to go to the hospital and there are hundreds of thousands of children who are abused, neglected, abandoned.

 

The elected officials’ solution to those problems is endless debates and partisan bickering; but they are eager to spend billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to send to foreign governments.

 

That may partly be the people’s fault:

  • the people elected those officials
  • the people choose to defend those officials’ actions however wrong
  • the people are engaged in a partisan fight: Democrats vs Republicans
  • the people are most inclined to side with a party instead of standing for the country.

 

Well, it’s not partly the people’s fault. It’s totally the people’s fault.

 

If you had to choose between feeding your kids and feeding the neighbors’, which ones would you choose to feed first?

The choice is simple and the solution does not require a college degree; unite with the country, not a party.
