Once again our politicians rise to the level of kindergarten children.
I feel what should be done is repeal the 27th Amendment, which gives the politicians continued salary during a shutdown while many other government employees have to wait until the "children" who are making -- or, I should say, not making -- decisions that affect all the people in the United States decide to do their jobs.
Before I continue, I want to emphasize that I am referring to both governing parties, Democratic and Republican.
When they can't arrive at a decision to pass things that affect us all, and we are forced to shut down many departments because of their failure to sit down, vote and resolve the issues at hand, then we should be able to fire or impeach three politicians from both parties. Then maybe we would see how fast all of the decisions at hand would be voted upon and resolved. We need politicians who can make decisions before a shutdown and not engage in party-line voting.
I feel that the only way we can have a good government is to have them remove the aisle between them and have them all sit together -- Democrat, Republican, Democrat, etc. Maybe with this seating arrangement we can achieve harmony within our government and have a stronger leadership in our government.
