The people vs. the incumbents

Our elected representatives, their political handlers, the power lobbyists that flood Washington, D.C. and leaders of the two principal political parties just don’t get it. The forthcoming election is not about Republicans against Democrats. It’s about we the people against all incumbents.

The incumbents have all been good team players except they have been supporting unsustainable concepts that are not in the best interests of we the people. It will come as a shock to them in November after the elections. They will get it then. One thing they shouldn’t get are the exceptional pensions they voted on for themselves but that will change eventually as well.
