Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Torches Trump For Shutdown In First House Floor Speech

January 17, 2019

Good to see at least some of the Freshmen Congressional Representatives are taking their new jobs seriously. When will the President and GOP Congressional leadership start doing likewise? There seems to be little or no empathy between them and the Federal Government employees who are either furloughed or working without pay – let alone their dependents and others sorely in need of their services. – rjc

To our absentee government:

Do your jobs. End the shutdown. Negotiate a solution to the immigration laws and policies so desperately in need of reform. Stop treating good, hard-working government workers like hostages and pawns in your never-ending quest to concentrate wealth and political power in the hands of fewer and fewer elites regardless of how that agenda affects the vast majority of Americans and even those living abroad.

    The actions by both Trump and Pelosi are so bizarre and so immature, it is not Government for the people! It is time we the people demand changes and fire both of them. We need fresh new ideas by professional legislators who care and remember who they work for. Out either be OLD.

Top of the website note this morning “Due to the lapse in federal funding this website will not be actively managed.” These people and others do vital work for the US and researchers worldwide.
