Advice to Congress: Just get it done

You gotta be kidding me! The Republican “majority” elected by reactionary mental giants that are going to waste the people’s time again in Congress rehashing and destroying a health care program sorely needed and others too (with tweaks).

Both my wife and I make six figures and after a series of tests my co-pay with a great health plan is in the $30,000 range: not a problem for us, but what about you?

Republican geniuses, wait until you need health care and are inundated with overcharges, wrong account numbers/addresses, requests for information, excessive billing charges for simple consumables, slow payouts, etc. Yep, I do believe it is time for Congress to have the health care insurance we have to pay for and use that is not given to us and paid for by the people — why not cut that waste and ante up? And theirs covers everything, no questions asked.

Republicans please really do the people’s dictate: Fix schools, provide funding for small business owners to ramp up and hire people and produce American products, apply tariffs on competing foreign products like our competitor countries do. I do hope we never go to war with China; we won’t be able to get chips and parts we need.

Can’t wait to see the Democrats apply the Constitution you hide behind. Let’s just wait and see you squirm when it is applied to you. And having personally witnessed on numerous occasions the amount of human assets needed to accomplish a simple workload floors me (both parents were government employees, I heard it all and saw it too). Eliminate federal waste and restore our infrastructure, conceive of and implement a robust cyber security program, as is we are toast. Do you lock down your wireless router and computer at all levels?

It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out. Get’er done, ya’ll.
